Project 2010 libray : Link to an external EDM ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    In a Project Server 2010 library, is it possible to create a link toward a document located in an external EDM ( Electronic Document Management such as Alfresco) and associated to a specific project and/or a specific task?

  • You could create a list of links that point to external documents.  The issue would be if you wanted to create a collection of both documents and links to external documents.

    The low cost way would be to just add a hyperlink column to the document library and use that to capture the external document.  When you need to create a new link, you create a new blank document and add the hyperlink.

    The harder way would be to explore integration between the EDM and SharePoint.  Check online or with your EDM vendor to see if there are any integration points.
