Including Teamwork File/Folder in task description/comment

When modeling, there may be external resources you want to attach to a model which help to describe it in detail or include data that cannot be modeled within the tool, like a text document. For example, you may want to attach a scanned image of a transaction receipt to a diagram that describes the transaction process so that the analyst can design the new system based on the image. Or maybe an image file showing the user's expectation of the user interface.

Visual Paradigm features a project-based file repository for storing and managing these files, known as teamwork files. When creating a task in Tasifier, or when adding a comment, you can include such a teamwork file as part of the content by adding its URL into the content.

To include a teamwork file in task description/comment:

  1. In Visual Paradigm, select View > Project Browser from the toolbar to open the Project Browser or press Ctrl-Shift-B.

  5. Confirm the change in task description or post the comment. If the file is an image, you can see it directly in the task description or in the comment posted. If the file content cannot be rendered, the file will appear as a link. You can click on it to view it in a popup browser.
