Adding Hyperlinks


Also see Adding Attachments (Images and Picture)


DICS offers users the facility to add hyperlinks (such as e-mail and web addresses) to your risk assessment.


Hyperlinks provide single-click access to Web pages through a URL (Uniform Resource Locator) or to files through a name in UNC (universal naming convention) format.


Used for storing links to files on:

your computer (a file name);

a network (a UNC name);

the internet (a URL address).

A hyperlink entry contains three parts separated by hash signs (#). The template is:

    display text # file name # any reference within the file


Clicking the the Image button across the top of any of DICS's risk modules will will up the Image and Hyper-link form.


Some examples may help show how this works:
