Upload Forms plugin

Added by Tudor Cornea almost 10 years ago

I would like to present the Redmine Upload Forms plugin.

Details
The plugin is useful for collecting information from groups of users, similar to a
homework assignment on Moodle.

Features
*Allows creation/deletion of upload forms.
*Allows separate views of the uploaded files (each unprivileged user will see only his own uploaded files,
, privileged users can see all the files, and download them , if needed)
*Searchable
*Appears in the 'Activity tab'

Implementation
*The plugin is based on the 'documents' module, and it should integrate easily
with the rest of the modules available in Redmine.
*The current version requires 'tar' to be available on the system.
*Users are allowed to upload a single file per upload form, currently.

Testing
*Ubuntu 11.04
*Redmine v. 1.2.0 (bitnami stack)
*Ruby v. 1.8.7
*Rake v. 0.8.7
*Rails v. 2.3.11

You'd better add your plugin in the plugins' directory, here

Thanks for your contribution.

Does your plugin work on Windows machine?

Nice Work. Thanks.

The current version of the plugin is dependent on 'tar', so it will probably not work on Windows.

I have added it to the plugins directory http://www.redmine.org/plugins/redmine_upload_forms.

Here are some screenshots of the plugin.

Here is always removed the only document uploaded on a form wehn i try to uploads a second file in the same document. It always shows the message "This will delete any previously uploaded files. Are you sure you want to do this?" if i add a second file.

Why did you do that plugin? Is that of the feature to download a documents folder as tar?Would be geat if you could provide patch to include that feature into the standarc document view and controler in redmine core.

Thank you for your feedback.

The deletion of previously uploaded files was supposed to be a key feature of the plugin.

I made the plugin because I needed a lightweight combination between 'documents' and 'files', from the core modules,
with a behavior similar to that of an assignment on Moodle ( where a single file is collected from each user, and any newer file uploaded will overwrite the old one), and the current ones didn't satisfy my needs.

I could try to write the patch , if that is needed.

Hello Ivan

I have installed the DMSF plugin, but I don't think it's what I need, that's why I created the plugin.

I want something like when I upload a file, other users should not see it, if they do not have the permissions to do so.
In DMSF, it seems that all of the files are view-able by everybody, even if they are not admins, for ex.

Do you know if this is possible with DMSF ?
