Adding Entities to an Innoslate Document

To add a Requirement entity, click the “New Requirement” button.

This will add the new Requirement entity to the end of your document.

To add a Statement entity instead, simply click on the dropdown button next to the "New Requirement" button and select the 'Statement' option.

Add Statement Docs View

When adding or selecting a Requirement or Statement entity, the attention will be directed towards the newly added entity, and the top toolbar will display options to add a new parent entity ('Add After') or add a child entity ('Add Child').

  • Note, the 'Add Existing Entity' pop up allows users to select existing entities from within the project or bring in entities from other projects.  Bringing entities in from another project is known as cross-project relationships. For the step by step process of creating cross project relationships, visit that here.
  • To optimize the search for existing entities, input 'name:' or 'number:' followed by the desired name or number in the 'Select entity to relate' field.

Delete and Remove an Entity from Documents View

Upon selecting an entity, the top toolbar provides the option to remove the entity or to delete it from the project:

'Remove from Document' is the defaulted option if the Remove button is selected. To delete the entity from the database, select the dropdown and select 'Delete from Database'

To remove multiple entities all at once from a Document, we suggest using Database View.
