I have a question about best practices in implementing a classification scheme
in an EDMS. We use Livelink, so I especially welcome suggestions from Livelink
I've just about finished creating an organisation-wide functional classification
scheme with three levels. I would like to start restructuring the EDMS system,
reflecting the new classification scheme.
I have received advice to structure the top folders by organisational area and
then to use the "classifications" feature of Livelink to recreate my
classification scheme "in the background". I'm not sure this is sound advice.
While I worked on the classification I thought that I might recreate it in the
EDMS as it is on paper. Where record series headings apply to more than one
organisational area, I would create subfolders for each area if necessary -- if
segregation was required. In this case access permissions would be applied at
lower levels rather than top levels.
I would appreciate any suggestions or comments,
