Merging Files & Documents

Added by Shane Pearlman about 7 years ago

Hi Everyone,

In the last core meeting we agreed that it was reasonable to merge files and documents into a single media library. To kick off that discussion I have made a series of quick wireframes.

The core ideas I want to introduce (in addition to the existing ones):

  • Media library is an system that organizes ALL files for a project includes those uploaded in issues or the wiki. It will help answer the question: where the heck is that image/document/file?
  • tags to help make files organizable / searchable
  • simple version-ing to help keep track of file history
  • thumbnailing of images

This is the kickoff of a discussion and we are going to try to balance features versus available resources. So some awesome ideas might not make it simply because of resource constraints.

Thanks! I couldn't find it, but plugin is there http://www.redmine.org/plugins/dmsf
Does it handle issue attachments, too?
I have users that need to access Redmine only at file level.
Regards, Zdravko

No, it doesn't - sorry.

Any updates on this? DMSF is great but
1) One can't have folderwise permissions
2) It will be nice to have folder structure for issues in Files section - many times we end up with lots of files.
Thanks.
