I get asked quite frequently; 
"I don't want to embed a file, I just want to make a clickable link to a file somewhere on the public P: drive.   How do I do that in Notes?"
I know it's possible, but even I have problems remembering how - and it's not always that reliable.
I guess what I'd really like is something similar to the file attach paperclip icon that prompts for a file path and name and then makes a link in the Notes client.  It needs to be easy enough for the least computer literate people in our organisation to use it.
Sure, I know it won't work outside the organisation or if someone has different mappings and I know that Quickr is better etc...  but I still want it.
------ UPDATE: Despite Searching beforehand, I've just found another idea on the same topic, so you should probably vote for it instead.---------
