General File Store for regsitered users

Postby Crispy_Pancake » 06.02.2017, 18:15

Is it possible to create a general file store for registered users?

This File store would be read only to registered users and used to store document templates that may be required for different types of customer.
The file store would work in the same way as the one created for projects but be accessed under a separate tab.

Thanks in advance

Thank you for thinking about how we might improve Collabtive! :)

Unfortunately I don't see how this feature might fit into Collabtive's purpose of project management.
We would like to stick to this one purpose as much as possible, mainly for the following reasons:
- Keep things as simple as possible for potentially non-technical / new users
- Keep things as simple as possible for us developers to avoid unnecessary complexity. Writing code is complex enough anyway :D

However, if you feel this feature would greatly benefit your collaborators, we'll be glad to help you with a custom development.

Hi Eva
Thank you for your response.

For many projects we use the same pro forma and templates and also have guideline documents and other standard documents that are required. Rather than having to upload the documents into individual project file stores I was just thinking that it would be useful to have a single location that users could refer to. So for example, If you had a new pro forma that was required for all projects it would be easily added to the Collabtive and instantly accessible across all projects.

Again, thank you for your response and for creating such a fantastic platform.

You could create a dedicated project for the purpose. Just name it "General Information and Templates" (or similar) and assign every user to this project?
