Storing Documents and Links to Documents in the same library in SharePoint

This is something simple, but I’ve been asked several times about it already, so I’m going to post instructions here on how to achieve this.

Requirement: Store documents and links to documents in the same library

Implementation:

1. Create a Document Library within your site

2. In Library Settings > Advanced Settings enable management of content types

3. Add content type from existing site content types

4. Select and add Link to a Document as a new second content type

5. Start adding content using both content types:

Now you can store in the same document library both Documents and Links to external documents.

Hope this helps, enjoy!
