Description

  • when files are uploaded/added to an Issue, Wiki page, Forum, Document etc, then the file will show up in the "Files" module with an extra column titled "Related To:" which would have a short link to where that file came from
  • Folders: each file could be filed into a certain folder
    or
  • Tags: each file could be tagged with multiple tags to help organize the information better

+1 for this!! It would be really good, sometimes finds files in tickets are so dificult.

  • Folders: each file could be filed into a certain folder
    or
  • Tags: each file could be tagged with multiple tags to help organize the information better

I think that folders are useless when using tabs. GMail, for example, use tags instead of folders and it's a very good approach for me.

I agree about the Tags vs Folders topic. I just wanted to present both, but I think tags are the way to go, definitely after my experience using GMail.

Would this be a tough addition? (both aggregating all the files and tagging?)

Oh, sorry. I didn't realized the 'or' in your original post.

I believe I'm not the right guy to answer that since I'm not a Ruby developer, only a Redmine user.. :(
Maybe someone else could answer..

Yes, unfortunately I am not a programmer either. Maybe it will get picked up by someone.

And if this could also tie in to allowing "universal" file linking, that would be nice to. In other words file is assigned both an absolute and a relative identifier. In the page it was uploaded on, it can be referenced by attachment number relative to that page. For linking to files outside of the page, whether linked to other pages, or in the mail files area, proper file name could be used perhaps?

Actually, I think this is a very good feature. Are there any plans to include it in redmine? Or maybe there is another idea?

What about this design here (it is 2 years old!)

Maybe there are some other issues related to new document/files/pictures managemnt?
