|Include text modules
Apart from creating links, the factline Community Server (FCS) offers
the special possibility to directly include the content of an
information object ("fact"), e.g. as full text, elsewhere. This way
dynamic content can be combined to a whole without any redundancies.
This FCS function is called "factinclude".
In reality, several project members participate in the creation of a
project report. Each team member writes specific parts which are
combined forming a complete project report. Thus, the report is
separated into individual texts which can be edited and commented on
individually. This way, an overview of the status of the individual
texts is enabled. At the same time, difficulties which usually arise
during the assembly of individual file versions are avoided. With the
help of the function "factinclude", these text elements are intregrated
into the complete project report as full text. Subsequently, the
project report generates itself automatically on the basis of the most
current versions of the individual modules.
Let us take an online manual as an example. Due to the function
"factinclude", individual help texts can be included as full text at
several positions. The advantage: If a help text is modified, which is
quite common in case of updates, it does not need to be updated
everywhere it has been included. The modifications are automatically
