  8. 8. Mock ApproachPros• Inexpensive and quick to implement– Add code behind one fieldCons• Less precise– Points to folder, not document• Populates as soon as record iscreated in CTMS– Cannot tell whether document has trulybeen uploaded to EDMS
  9. 9. EDMS-Driven ApproachWhat It Does• Auto-generates a hyperlink in CTMSwhen the document is uploaded intoEDMS• Can also share metadata about thedocument
  10. 10. EDMS-Driven ApproachHow It Works1. Document tracking record is createdin CTMS, and includes a document“code.”2. Document is uploaded to EDMS andrequired metadata is entered,including document code.3. Interface finds corresponding recordin CTMS and populates URL fieldwith link to document in EDMS.
