  2. In the left pane, navigate to where you want to add the folder. Then click the link for that location.

  3. In the right pane, click Folder.

  4. In the appropriate boxes, type a title for the folder and a brief description of the type of content that is to be stored in the folder.

Adding a New Document

To add a new document to make it accessible to you from within Planview Enterprise and possibly share it with other users:

  3. In the right pane, click Document.

    You can add documents located on a local or network drive, but it is recommended that the size of your file not exceed approximately 2 MB.

    By default, the Author box contains the name of the person adding the document.

  6. Select or clear the Can be copied check box to specify whether changes to the content are done in the original version of the content or a separate copy.

    • Clear the check box to record changes on the original version of the content, which is shared among all users who have read/write access to the content.

    • Select the check box if you want a user who has read/write access to the content to make changes on a separate copy of the content instead of a shared version.

  7. To track and store previous versions of the document as the system is modified, select the Track Versions check box.

  8. To track and store information about who read the document and the date and time they did so, select the Track Reads check box.

  9. If your administrator configured an expiration date for content, take the following steps:

    1. In the Expiration Date field, select the date on which the document is to expire.

      An expiration date does not affect the document.

    2. In the Notify of Expiration field, use the Data Picker to select the user who is to be sent a notification regarding the document's expiration.

  10. Select any alternate structure attributes if applicable.

  11. Type one or more search keywords that can be used to locate the document. Separate keywords with a comma or semi-colon.

  12. Click Save.

    An entry for the document is added to the content files listed in the Review Content screen's right pane.
