Project Linking

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Using the Project linking configuration it is possible to provide functionality in the WebOffice 10.8 SP2 clients to switch from one WebOffice 10.8 SP2 project to another on the fly.

 

The current map extent gets passed, therefore using project switching it is possible to view different aspects of one specific location.

 

In order to provide project linking inside the WebOffice 10.8 SP2 project, you need to configure

a List of Projects (all available projects for linking) and

a Project Switching Index (the index specifies for each WebOffice 10.8 SP2 project to which other projects the user is able to switch to).

 

Project Groups are another available child element of the node project linking. The idea behind project groups is, to logically group related projects, so users can choose from this group of projects in case they are starting WebOffice 10.8 SP2 without any specification of a project.
