You can link composite documents to retrieved documents in the Retrieve Data dialog box in Smart Construction using the Link composite document to retrieved documents option. This option is helpful if you need to synchronize different versions and revisions of a composite document. For example, you can use the option to synchronize a new revision of a composite document that has a previously retrieved document appended to it. Or you can use the option to link directly to a new composite document without having to retrieve all documents again. For example, a new composite document was created in SmartPlant Foundation using a document or documents that were already retrieved in Smart Construction; however, the composite document has not yet been retrieved into Smart Construction. You can use the Link composite document to retrieved documents option to link the composite document to the retrieved document.
Click Administration on the Smart Construction Standard Toolbar and select Retrieve Data to open the Retrieve Data dialog box.
On the Retrieve Data dialog box, type or select search criteria to view data available for retrieve, then click Execute Search. Search for models.
Click Link composite documents to retrieved documents in the Status column of the document you want to link.
Click Link on the message box to send a scheduled task to SmartPlant Foundation to link the document and build relationships.
Click Don't link to cancel linking the retrieved documents.
You can query for the status of the scheduled task in SmartPlant Foundation Desktop Client. The name of the scheduled task is the name of the composite document. For more information, see Query for the status of scheduled documents.
