Using any Lotus Quickr connector, team members can publish, link to, and collaborate on files in Lotus Quickr libraries integrated with enterprise content management (ECM) systems such as IBM FileNet P8 or IBM Content Manager.
Teams can publish to and link to files in an ECM library from a connector and collaborate on files using the typical features available for any document stored in a Lotus Quickr place such as editing and checking in and out to mention a few. Publishing and linking capabilities are supported by the features of the .qkr file link described below. Documents that are published and linked-to using a Lotus Quickr connector can reside in the following ECM repositories:
Using the .qkr file link
The .qkr file link enables teams to publish and create links to ECM documents from Lotus Quickr libraries (as well as from rich text areas of blogs and wikis) so that team members can collaborate on these documents. The .qkr file provides a shortcut to the actual target file–the file icon corresponding to the link appears with a shortcut arrow overlay. Users can click the .qkr file to access and work with the document instead of exchanging file attachments and the file will open in its native application.
- If a user tries to open the target document but the target document was deleted or archived or the user does not have permission to view it, then the user will not be able to access the document and will receive a message to that effect.
- Access to a target document is managed by the place where the document is stored.
- If a user selects to delete the .qkr file, only the link is deleted, not the target file.
- Users can change e-mail preferences to send a URL instead of a .qkr file link.
- The properties of the target file are different from the properties of the .qkr file. Properties for the .qkr file only show details pertaining to the link itself but not for the target file.
