Add description field on file upload

by hughdouglas on 24 Apr 2013 08:44 | 1955 Hits | 0 comment(s)

In a simple briefcase scenario where front end users can upload files, often this requires something more than the filename to identify and distinguish between files. When a file is uploaded, its properties can be accessed which gives details to a full set of properties including the description. However it is a two step process which requires uploading files, then individually updating the description.
What I propose is adding a "Description" field to the file upload process so that optionally, users can select files to upload and add a short description or title which will populate the current field in the database. If a user wants to add more info, they can in the current manner.
This would be particularly useful in the frontend upload briefcase scenario where the users uploading files are not always expert users who understand the current second step in adding more info on something they have uploaded.
