I am wondering if anyone is facing a similar challenge that we do.
When working with different Doc_Types, especially PROJECTS, we find the need to have a large number of attachments.
A sourcing project for example could end up having dozens of attachments at the main project level and it would be interesting to have the ability to add folders.
Further if the “TOP” of the project could see the attachments for the tasks below without having to go though all the individual tasks that could be a big time saver.
E.g. - When we’re running a sourcing project we may get quotations, catalogues, and other important information from multiple suppliers. Although an individual supplier can be managed at that task level when we have large scale projects with dozens of task, each with dozens of attachments, it’s hard to remember where stuff is.
The solution in my mind is that the Project itself could assign folders, but perhaps, adding some kind of browse task attachments in that left nav could also be possible.
I’m not the designer but the first concept at the project level would allow custom named folders: (Using icons or better visual is a given.)
FOLDER: Price Lists
FOLDER: Competitive Products
The task view can just reduce the task ID from: TASK-2020-00384 to the last digits that are not zero.
384: >>FOLDER: Product Photos
384: >>FILE: Supplier Price List
387: >>FILE: Supplier Price List
388: >>FOLDER: Catalogue
388: >>FILE: Supplier 2 Price List
The objective is to give a greater sense of control and visibility to the project manager and users so that we don’t have to spend so much time looking for files or uploading duplicates because we forgot where they are.
Although I dream of some kind of direct drop box folder integration for the project that would be something that can be discussed later.
As always I am willing to sponsor this if there is interest, and talent available to get this feature completed.
@rmehta - If the community wants this and Frappe can build - give me a budget and I’ll find the $$.
