Relation to other templates: To document a well-defined combination of documents and files, a Configuration Diagram should be used. Other templates related to the configuration of Reports are: Browser Diagram, Document Structure, and Document Header.

Properties and metadata: The Document Desktop can for example retain the following information:

  • A description of the desktop
  • Audits (auto generated information regarding its current state and access rights)
  • Associated documents, diagrams and other objects
  • Inherent Risk detailing risk considerations
  • Governance information detailing information about the published diagram and who has been involved in the approval of the diagram

The above picture shows the properties dialogue window for the Document Desktop, where you can view and edit the diagram’s properties in QualiWare Lifecycle Manager.
