Hello

I wonder, how come that it's not possible to upload file from within the New Document area?

At the moment in order to create new document for downloading, admin must do this:
1. Upload file via Batch upload or ftp
2. Click Documents, click New, Select category, Select uploaded file.

Which is OK with small amount of documents/files,
but as number of files grows, its will be more difficult to find this new uploaded file, and it will be very easy to make a mistake to select wrong file.

IMHO it would be faster and easier if we could upload a file from within "New document" area.
If this is not possible, it would be nice if selecting category would actually filter uploaded files in "Select file" drop down.

Ideally, both workflow features could be implemented in newer versions.

This would need some ajax coding, but it would help a lot in scenarios with many categories and many uploaded files
and this component is to be used in such scenarios :)

What do you think?

Thanks,
Regards

Hi

Related to my 1st question, I've found the answer, there is a setting to allow upload per document. I've found this one while observing all options in settings.
Edocman > Configuration > File Upload Method > Upload new file on each document.

However, feature suggestion to filter files per category, if File Upload Method is "Choose file from server", is still valid.
