Hyperlink Attachments



I have a document, the content of which I want to make available to several Test cases. The only way that I can see to achieve the effect that I want, is to provide the document in the form of an attached Hyperlink.

I want to use a Hyperlink so that should the content of the document change, these changes will be accessible in the Test cases without any further Test case editing.

However, if there is another way to provide this capability, I am open to suggestion.

Can you provide me with some guidance as to the best way to achieve this outcome?

If your company can set up a URL to host documents - it looks like there is a custom field you can add to the Case with a type of URL but your company would need to set up a server to host the documents via URL.


Thanks, that has been a great help!
