Start Work Start Work

First: Receive the prepared wiki page name from the Topic Responsible.

Then: Create a new work document for the specified wiki page. The new document will be based on the relevant template, loaded from the server.

The "Title" attribute is by default set to the wiki page name, specified by the user in the new document. The Title property value is suggested as the save-page name when the user saves the document to ARCTIS.

The document should be saved, using the same wiki page name, as specified in "Start Work".



Save Save

Save the Word document to the ARCTIS server, use the specified page name. The user must have editing permissions for the specified page.

The documents Title property will be shown as the default page name.

The Tag property will be included as "freetags" on the server. If "Auto Tag" is checked, the WordApp will use summariser to automatically generate a set of tags to use. These will be additional to any tags set manually in the documents Tag property.


The categories determines in which part of the server the page is saved.

The set of category options depends on the type of file edited in Work
