A newer version of this fact exists. (view)
To give an overview of your platform contents you can create a structure-tree with folders and shortcuts. You can do this in the area “structure”.

Connection Structure – Services
Services are "pots" where the real original facts (data) are stored per Service-type. The Structure on the other hand, is the place where you can structure all facts of any Service-type, e.g. like a topic index, table of contents or just the same way you use your folders on your PC, to organize your files.

This structure-tree can be built with folders and shortcuts. Shortcuts are only a copie of the title with a link to the real fact in the background. A click on the shortcut opens the real fact.

The content exists in the service-"pots" independently from the structure-tree. The structure consists only of shortcuts (“links”) to the real facts and they can be grouped in folders. Not all facts have to appear in the structure-tree, but you can include several shortcuts to one single fact on different places in the structure-tree. Width and depth of the structure-tree are optional. Shortcuts can be created and deleted as often as you want. The real fact will not be affected by this.
