Adding a comment to an item’s history
Is it possible to add a comment to an item’s history log for a specific event? Specifically I would like to be able to add a comment when an attachment is checked in. This comment would be provided by the user to be recorded in the item’s history (specifically a document). Alternatively, adding a line to the history log after check in that would record the comment would also be acceptable.
Thanks in advance for any help
You’ll have to develop a WSX for this, as that’s the best option especially thinking about your request for the user to add his or her own unique comment. It’d be a lot easier adding a generic comment into the object’s history tab using a Groovy script after an Extend Actions menu or check-in file action.
Keep in mind though that Agile is specifically designed like this – I’m sure many CMs on this site strongly recommend you use an MCO if there’s something that should be documented in the item’s change history. You’re opening the door bad practices if you don’t get your users to use the best methods.
