I have to create a DMS soon for a client. The client must be able to drop files by dragging and dropping, adding tags, adding metadata, doing research on the files and their content. Do you think that with Ninox I can do this? Especially drag and drop it from multiple files. How to search in the content files? Of course this app must be webbased.
If i cant do that with ninox, another solution?
Thank you in advance for your answers.
What does "doing research on the files and their content" imply?
1. Drag / Drop ... Yes.. (mostly) .. you can drag files onto an "image" field . So that is one file at a time.
2. Collect meta data.. Yes.. I would do a composite table of tag / values.
Here is the kicker.. "How to search in the content files" ... hmm.. without trying to get real tricky... the "image" file would have to be parseable / readable.. Sure .. there is the "raw" function ... but that would not do for DOCX, PDFs, etc..
If the back end file store was something like GoogleDocs.. there may be a way to use the googleAPI to scan file contents..
Let us see what the rest of the community recommends.
Oh.. you can drag / drop multiples if using attachments.. but if the meta data is different.. you would have to get creative.
