NC4 - E Team - R9.8 Using E Team - Document Library

The E Team Document Library provides the means by which to add documents to your E Team system that can be shared among all users and added as an attachment to an E Team report instance using the Attachment fields.

The Document Library structure can be configured by an E Team user who is a member of the ETeam Managers or System Admin group, or has been given the  permission Data_Dictionary (EDITOR). 

Users who are a member of the E Team Authors, Editors, Managers, or System Admin groups, or who have been given one of the following permissions, doc_library (AUTHOR) or doc_library (EDITOR) can add documents to the library. All E Team delivered groups contain the proper permission to read library documents.

Only users in the E Team Managers and System Admin groups, or who have been given the permission doc_library (DELETE) have rights to delete library documents.

Structuring the Document Library 
It is recommended that you take the time to define and create your folder structure prior to adding your first library document.

To create or edit folders or the existing folder tree structure in which to store documents:

  1. Log into E Team.
  2. Navigate to Data Dictionary > Keywords.
  3. Locate the keyword Category, and place the document in update mode.
    You will be presented with a sample folder structure as shown below. You will enter your own folder structure following this example.
    Folder 1
    Folder 2
    Folder 2:Sub Folder 1
    Folder 2:Sub Folder 1:Sub Folder A
    Folder 3
  4. Replace the default information with your own as instructed below:
    • Add your top level folder names.
    • Add your second level by entering the top level name followed by a colon and the second level folder name.
    • Add each subsequent level in the same manner using the full folder path with each level separated by a colon.
      Ex:
      Action Plan
      Action Plan:Earthquake
      Action Plan:Earthquake:Fire Dept
      Action Plan:Earthquake:Fire Dept:Chief
  5. When done submit the keyword document.

The example above will look like this in your Document Library.
