SpiraPlan includes an integrated web-based document management system that allows project members to upload documents in a secure, centralized location, with support for folder organization, documentation taxonomies and meta-tagging as well as built-in version control. Unlike a standalone tool, these documents can then be connected to SpiraPlan artifacts (requirements, tasks, incidents) to provide the complete picture to users.
With SpiraPlan, all files, screenshots and web links uploaded to the system are available in the integrated document management system. This allows you to organize the documents into folders, categorize by document types and associate with meta-tags. Once uploaded, users can search, sort and filter the documents as well as find dynamically related items through the meta-tag hyperlinks.
Once uploaded to the central knowledge repository, revisions to the documents can be uploaded so that there is complete audit trail of all changes made to artifacts and associated documentation in the project.
SpiraPlan provides a freeform meta-tagging system for documents:
In addition, documents can have custom fields, allowing you to categorize and organize your other uploaded assets according to business needs:
Any document uploaded into the system can be linked to artifacts in SpiraPlan, allowing users to navigate from SpiraPlan artifact to related documentation, to other associated artifacts.
SpiraPlan includes a powerful email notification engine that lets you subscribe to specific documents and setup notification events to alert users when documents are revised or updated:
