How to Add a Link to the SharePoint Online Document Library?

Requirement: Add a link in the SharePoint Online document library.

In SharePoint Online libraries, You can add a link to any other item located outside the document library. E.g. you can add a link to a file or folder located in a different document library, site, or even an external website. By linking to other resources, we can group related items together, without them actually being stored in SharePoint document libraries. To add a shortcut link in the SharePoint document library, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the library where you would like to add the link.
  2. Click on the “+New” button from the toolbar >> Select “Link” from the drop-down menu.add link in sharepoint online
  3. You’ll be prompted with a pane to enter the link and a name for it. Provide those according to your requirement. You can also pick any recent document from the list.sharepoint online add link to document library

That’s all. Now the link is successfully added to the document library. Here is my another post on Create shortcuts in the SharePoint document library using “Link to a Document” content type
