Add a New Post

To create a new Post on a Topic in the Team Review, you have three options:

  • Create a blank Post
  • Create a Post based on a predefined template
  • Create a Post from a file link.

When you have created the Post you can create and edit text in it. You can also create links to elements and diagrams from the Project Browser, Model Search dialog, Model Views window and Element List, or you can link to related Team Review Categories, Topics or Posts. You can also insert links to external files, either in the text of the Post or in the links panel.

When you have saved the Post, other users can then reply to it.

Blank Post

To create a blank message into which you can type text exactly as you require, follow the steps below:

  • Click on the Topic name and on the New icon in the Team Review toolbar, or

       A new Post icon displays in the hierarchy.

Post From External File Link

To create a Post based on a link to an external file, follow the steps below:

  1. Open a file browser (such as Windows Explorer) and locate the file.
  2. Click on the file name and drag it onto the appropriate Topic name in the Team Review window.

A 'New Post' item is created underneath the selected Topic, and the body of the Post is created in the Team Review tab. A link to the source file is created at the start of the message.

You can create and edit text around the file link, and add further links if required. You should also rename the 'New Post' item, by clicking twice on it.
