Upload File Option

Post by mwilliam » 2018-04-13 14:34

When a user is created, a directory is created for that user, maybe call it userdata, then users folders are there. When they upload a file/photo, doc, zip, it stores it there. So when a record is added, and saved, it creates a link for those files or perhaps a small file listing manager type thing for each record.

This way multiple files can be uploaded. Not just one.

Hmm ... creating a user-specific upload folder would introduce some complexity .. for example, what if you want to re-assign record ownership to another user .. would it still link to the original user's files or the new one? Multiple file uploads can be implemented currently in a simpler way by adding a child table with a single upload field ... this child table would appear under the main record in a tab and you can upload multiple files into it, each as a separate record, and you now get multiple files listed under the main record.

We also plan to implement an "album" field in future releases that allows users to upload multiple images/files into a single text/blob field.
