The one-click create method ismost useful to create artifacts of thesame type quickly. With the one-clickcreate method, you can create severalartifacts rapidly and with a minimalnumber of keystrokes and mousemovements.To edit the added artifacts, it is usefulto display needed attributes incolumn, thus allowing you to edit theartifacts directly in the Artifacts table.You can use a saved view to get thecorrect columns to display.

Artifacts areorganized into structured hierarchicalrelationships. Artifact hierarchicalrelationships can be structured as afamily or as a tree.In the requirements managementapplication, all artifacts within amodule have a property Sectionwhich reveals their hierarchy withinthe module
