Store Links to Local Files in the URL field

markwilliams says:
The URL field is great for storing addresses of websites that are associated with tasks.

You can also store links to local files on your PC by including file:// and the path to your file. (e.g. file://c:\test\testfile.txt)

It would be so helpful to be able to link to a local document in a task. I often times have documentation that goes along with my task but I want to keep it on my local drive - I don't want to attach it to my task so it gets stored in the cloud. Just a link to local files would be awesome!!

Yes, please! The ability to link to a local document would be a time saving and make my work with RT more efficient.

While this would be good, there are some limitations inherent to it.

- RTM is designed so that you can access your account on any Internet-enabled device. Having a FILE:/// URL would only work on one device.
- Some browsers block FILE:/// URLs be default (this one is easily adjusted, though).

Though not as convenient, a note can be added with the folder path in it. That can then be copied and pasted into File Explorer (for Windows).
