Detailed instructions on attaching documents in Topaz.
How to Add Links and Attach Files/Support Documents
Each Section has an Add Link button on the right side of the title bar, in the Protocols panel.
Clicking this button opens an Add Links panel to the right. In this panel you can choose either
Add Links or Add Files. The add links option will allow you to place links to
any available URL, including files stored in a "web share" location. The add files
option will load a selected file into the database and display a link to that file.
File size and web share access may be an issue.
Copying answers from another protocol
The Protocol Request toolbar includes a button labeled Copy Answers from Another Protocol.
This allows you to shorten the request entry process by using previous answers from another protocol. When
you click this button, you will be able to select another protocol, and any answers from questions that
the two protocols have in common will be copied over. The important feature to note about this process
is that the source protocol and the current working request do not have to be based on the same form.
The source protocol may be based on an older version of the form, or be for a different type of protocol that
has a special form of its own. The system will look for common questions between the two and copy over the answers.
