External links inside the project




I am interested in understanding the capabilities of inserting external links into an ArchiCAD file.

For our project, consolidating all relevant information within the ArchiCAD file would be highly beneficial. For instance, I'd like to know if it's possible to include reports from the constructor related to the foundation. Ideally, I'd like to access these reports by clicking on specific elements within the file, even if the report itself is not physically present in the ArchiCAD file but instead linked to a drive location.

As a second example, I'm curious if it's feasible to create links to folders containing photos, specific to certain areas or rooms within the project.

While I'm familiar with how to create external links for drawings, my inquiry pertains to integrating all other types of project documentation.

Your guidance and insights would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you.
