How can we force the user to choose a document type when uploading a file?

Jump to solution

Hi,

I would like to somehow force the user to choose the document type when he adds a file to a certain folder.

I can create a rule that will set the type to one specific type but this is not OK as I would like to have different types of documents in the same folder.

Would it be possible to open a form that will ask the user to choose the type when he uploads the document? Or to start a workflow that will ask to determine the type of the document?

Thank you in advance for your inputs,

Philip.

Try this addon: https://github.com/softwareloop/uploader-plus

Not sure if it works properly for Alfresco CE 5.2

Thank you very much. It is exactly what I need. We can't do much but it displays a form which lets you choose a file type (within the types that you selected while configuring the folder on which you want this to happen) and fulfill the meta data and other properties of the file.

Perfect!
