How to require names & descrpitions with uploads?

posts: 3656 United States

Using Tiki 24.... Is there a way to require (or at least prompt) users to enter a FILENAME and DESCRIPTION when uploading files to a File Gallery?

Currently, the process appears to be that I first upload my files, then have to navigate to the File Gallery and select Edit Proprieties in order to enter a filename and description. Surely, there's a way to do this during the upload?

And bonus points if the process supports multiple, batched, and ZIPed uploads, too!

Hey Rick, I remember awhile back I posed that question and was told to create trackers for that purpose. But I agree, it should be available with the native uploader.
So at this point, I do not believe there is a way, because the devs were telling me to use the tracker.

Yeah, Trackers work, but my usecase needs to support multiple uploads. While the FILES field for the tracker does that, I haven't figured out how to have multiple DESCRIPTION fields for each file — that appear dynamically as I add more and more files. :-(

What you are describing, I would absolutely love.
