You can also add a link to a document saved on your local machine directly through the iManage Links Manager panel by doing the following:
From iManage Work Desktop for Windows, open the document in which you want to insert the link. This is the container document.
Place the pointer where you want to insert the link.
On the Home tab or the iManage tab, select Manage File Links. The iManage File Links Manager panel appears.
Select Add native link from the Add iManage link drop-down list. The native Open dialog box appears.
Browse and select the document you want to link.
Select Open. The source document is now linked to the container document.
Save your changes.
If you have added source documents from your local machine, iManage Links Manager panel displays all the documents under the Microsoft Native Links sub-section as shown in the following figure.
