Allow user to manually "check" used Knowledge Item in Word

Postby ethno » 2015-06-03 21:46

Hi. In the Word Add-In (using Office 2013) under the Knowledge tab, I can access my Categories and Knowledge Items associated with them. As I "use" items by embedding their associated reference information as a citation field in the document (and/or the associated quotation), I note that they are given a small green "check" beside their Knowledge tab entry. This is good, as I am then reasonably confident that I have "dealt" with that particular item (i.e., given it my attention and incorporated what I had originally thought useful about it when I created the item).

Sometimes, however, I want to simply consider the item and move on. In some cases, the item isn't even a quotation (and thus has no need to have its reference information inserted). Thus, there is no way to have such an item "checked" as I go. Basically, what I'm saying is that it would be very helpful to have a way to MANUALLY mark a Knowledge Item as "used" or otherwise no longer being considered in the particular document that I'm working on. As it stands, right now, I have some items that I've skipped over b/c I'm not yet sure how/if I will incorporate them but I'm still interested in and others that I'm basically now sure that I don't need. I don't want to remove them from the Citavi project in some way (by going back to Citavi and removing them, for example, from the associated category) as I may use them in another document, but I DO want to be able to effectively keep track of their status in the particular document. It could be just another green check ... but, if possible, a "red" check (for example) could say "I'm not needing that one in this document." Other ones that I use (but are not, again, added into the document's references via a citation) could be given a green check just as the others. It really doesn't matter so long as the user has some control.
