  5. Click Log In. The Selection Dialog window displays all of the projects and document folders in which you have permission to create documents.
  6. Select the document folder in which you want to save the document.
    Note: Do not click on an existing document. This will prompt you to update that document.
  7. In the Document Properties window, clear Use Filename, then enter a name in the CollabNet TeamForge Document Name field. By default, the file name is used as the document name.
  8. Write a description for the document.
  9. Choose whether the document is in draft or final status.
