For some events you may wish to attach a Linked File to show additional information. When a file is linked to an event, a paperclip will appear next to it in the Events tab, and an icon corresponding to the document type will appear in the timelines.

  1. In the Event List, or on any timeline chart except the Chronology, right-click on the event and select* Linked Files*.
    On the Insert tab, in the Data group, select Link.
  2. In the Linked Files dialog box, select Add.
  3. If desired, enter a nickname for your file in the Nickname field. If no name is entered, the file name and path will be shown when accessing the file.
  4. Select the Browse button and browse to and select the file of your choice.
  5. Under Type, click the down arrow and select the document type of your linked file. This will determine the icon displayed on your timeline.
  6. Click OK.

Tip: Once a file is linked to an event, you can view it by hovering over the icon, then clicking the file pop-up. Files can also be viewed in the Linked Files dialog box by selecting the desired file and clicking the View button.

Note: If you do not see the icon for linked files beside events in your timelines, you probably have the option turned off. To view the icons in your timelines, select the Home tab and in the Show group, click Linked Files. A checkmark indicates the icons will be shown .
