Hi everyone

Has anyone been able to get this to work with 1.2?

I have tried and still can't find a way to do this.

 

Thanks

At the moment the only way to attach a file is to make a link to a file on your own server in the note section - and open a file on a location outside the ZIMS system server.

 

That needs to be discussed. If there is a need for documents for a specimen, no matter if we talk about pictures (*.jpg) og videos or plain documents (*.pdf), it is not a manageable choice to link to documents outside the ZIMS-server.

 

How do we want to assure, that documents are available, when an animal is transferred from one institution to another?

How do we want to assure, that documents are available for animals of an institution, that has shut down?

How do we assure, that vital information in these kinds of files are available for research and study?

 

Consider the case of a cites animal, that has all permits - from caught in the wild to transfer to an institution to permission for mounting after death. These documents need to be in the communities care.

 

Kind regards

Hi!

 

Has anyone found out how to attach a file to record? For example, is it possible to set up a link to an excel file or a link to a jpeg file. I'm sure it's possible - I've just not figured out how to do it yet.

 

Regards,
