Can some one answer my following EPF queries?

1. Why we are not allowing attachments for all guidance types,
currently it’s allowed only for Template Guidance type. For organizations
which already have a stable process and wants to enhance the system with
EPF, it looks to be a bottle neck since it’s not allowing me to upload the
existing guidance’s in the organization. This is more necessary because in
larger organizations guidance are off different formats like, doc, excel,
e-learning materials etc.

2. Similarly along with attachment option, we should also provide
an option to give the URLS for the guidance’s. So that the end user will
have the freedoms to neither upload the Guidance documents nor give the
URL for the same.

Hello.
(1) As I mentioned in the email list, you can attach and provide URLs in the
rich text fields using the Add Link button. The reason why there is not
separate field is that attachments for these types are not the normal case,
but rather the exception until you migrated your content in the EPF format.
For templates an attachment is required as you need to provide the
attachment for that third party tool the template describes. That's why
there is a separate field, to remind people.

(2) We could provide another field for templates that manage URLs, but in
most cases you want to document your URLs, i.e. explain what they point to,
don't you? So the rich text fields seem to be the best place to put these.

Thanks and best regards,

I can certainly see the logic in providing the attachment capability for
templates. However, there are several situations I've already encountered
where it would be useful to have an attached file or a URL appear in the
Guidance section. In my case, the URL provides more versatility, since I can
store files on a server and use a URL to refer to them.

It's true that a URL would need a label, and that the rich text editor
provides that capability, but this misses the point that the reference is
then buried in the textual description and is missing from the list of
Guidance materials. The benefit of standard document layout is that I can
visually leap to the area of the form where I expect to find what I'm
looking for, but that breaks down if all the guidance isn't in the Guidance
section.

I don't agree that this is only a transient need. In some cases it's
necessary to refer to materials that are not managed by the process
engineer. It may not make sense to import certain information into EPF. For
example, it would be a mistake to try to duplicate controlled content into
an EPF object and then have to maintain synchronization. Some examples I've
run into: references to the CMMI, IEEE standards, and useful web resources -
none of which will ever be imported to EPF.

Adding a URL Guidance subclass, with label and location values, would be
great! By the way, this could then be included in the rich text by
reference, as can other guidance types.

We are looking into a general reference management mechanism and the need to
provide a summary of references for an element or a group of elements. This
shall be done independently of a field for attachments for guidance, but in
a generic way for all elements.

The solution I have in mind would provide a BibTex like reference management
system and the ability to determine for elements and element types if
summaries shall be published or not for references used within the text
field as well as manually selected references. Anyone interested in writing
code for such a solution?

Hi Peter,

I definitelly agree with you that we should be very carefull in using
attachments in model
but during using EPFC I recognized that it can be very helpful has
option to attach file to Example.

Just let's imagine that we have Template 'project plan' in MS Project plan
format.
We find usefull attach some examples how this template can be use ... and
that's again MS Project file. :-)

all the best,
jan
