Different attachments on RTC Work Item, how to group them?

Rodrigo Mattos (133) | asked Sep 25 '14, 6:09 p.m.
I have a new custom work item called demand.
It is required from the client to add four types of files to the demand:
Solution Checklist
Metric Spreadsheet
Rejection document
Count Spreadsheet

They want to be able to identify the attachments within these four.
For example: Attachment AAA.doc is the solution Checklist
attachment BBB.xls is the metric spreadsheet and so on.

RTC works with one attachment field and I can attach all files in there, but I can't have different attachment fields to add different kinds of files and have them organized.
I tried to create non-attribute based presentations, kind = attachments and with different IDs but when I attach in one, all are updated.
Is there any way for me to attach different files and have them separated?

There is only one place where attachments are managed. You basically con only configure a presentation as far as I am aware. If you configure multiple presentations, you will see the same attachments in ll of them. So you can't split them.

The attachments have a description attribute. You could try to create a follow up action (participant) that changes the description when saving on the server, if that would be of any help. This would include Eclipse Server extension development and deployment.

That are basically the ideas I can come up with.
