Subject documents allow to set document instance of different doctypes in a common context.
Subjects allow to set document instance of different doctypes in a common context.
The document type subject provides the following properties:
Please note that only information about specific properties is provided here. Common document property used by all document types are documented by Document Properties.
No further properties are provided.
Documents the semantics of the subject.
Add additional aspects of a subject as children to this document.
Automatically collect documents with this subject.
Typically the collection of documents is limited to documents in this space. If there is the Search Space property defined for the space, additional spaces may be included in this search. For global spaces it may be handy to define the @all value for the search space of - for instance - the Display Table Macro.
Spaces are limited such that there can only be one page with a given title. Subjects typically define an alternate view on a topic. There may be other documents with the same title, but of different document types. Therefore Subjects prepend a paragraph ('
§') separated by a space in front of the name. You may check the box on the wizard to create a new subject to care for this conventional encoding.
Available since version 1.10.
While topics provides information in a chosen format, the Subject Doctype allows to group information independent of the document types. A subject references work your and your team try to accomplish or need to collect information about.
Tags and Categories
Tags and Categories are similar to Subject. But Categories build hierarchies, while tags do not convey the notion of a dedicated goal. While you usually associate a document with multiple tags and probably more than one category, you usually select a single subject.
Use subjects to group your or your team's work together and to keep track which subjects are relevant for your project.
