In BSCW, the events related to an object are grouped into five event types. In the object entries of a folder page, each type is represented by a specific event icon.
Create event: The object (document, folder, URL etc.) is new for you, you have not seen it before. This event may be caused by yourself or another member of the workspace.
Change event: The object has been somehow modified, e.g. renamed or edited. Adding new versions to a document and modification of metadata also belong to this event type.
Move event: The object has been moved from one location to another. Move events are generated when a document, folder, etc. is cut, pasted, deleted, undeleted, archived, extracted or converted.
Events inside: There are recent change events for objects somewhere within this folder, including its subfolders and the objects contained therein. This icon is only displayed for folders. Events of this type are only represented as event icons and are not transmitted by the other event services.
Read event: The object
has been accessed without modification, e.g. has been read, downloaded or
copied. BSCW lists only the most recent read event per
As far as event icons are concerned, read events are propagated to higher-level folders and are included in their event icons.
