Hi everybody,
I would like to know if there is a way to accomplish the following goal.
Let's assume that we have spaces with these properties: year, customer; and that we have the following space structure:

Company Home
+- Projects
    +- P1 (year = 2009, customer = alfa)
    +- P2 (year = 2010, customer = alfa)
    +- P3 (year = 2010, customer = beta)

So far so good, but I desire the presence also of a directory called "Navigation", which contains the above projects with a structure similiar to the one described below:

Company Home
+- Navigation
    +- Year
      +- 2009
        +- P1
      +- 2010
        +- P2
        +- P3
    +- Customer
      +- alfa
        +- P1
        +- P2
      +- beta
        +- P3

The content of the various "copies" of P1, P2, … is the same of the "real" directories under Projects: when I open Navigation/Year/2009/P1/somefile.txt , i'm actually editing Projects/P1/somefile.txt.

I've tried with "links" (created via Alfresco Explorer), but they didn't work in CIFS or WebDAV.
Sorry, I wasn't able to find an answer in the books or wiki; the best I found is , but I don't understand if and how changing the directory behaviour is possible.

I would like to have this structure in CIFS or webdav very much. The same structure in the Alfresco Explorer would be nice, but is not essential.

Thank you very much
