Zip and Download - Folders

AMS Collaborator’s latest enhancement now allows users to download the current folder or all folders in a workspace to a single zip file. In the documents section/feature, a user can now select “Zip current folder” or “Zip all folders” from the Options menu (top-right).  Once this item is chosen, a dialog box will appear that provides the user with the data size.  Note, when selecting “Zip current folder” for a folder that has sub-folders, the user has the option to include those subfolders in the zip file.  Once the file is prepared, the user can then download the file using their browser preferences. Additional Notes:  This feature requires users to have download permissions for that particular workspace.  For additional assistance in setting up this feature, please contact us.

Database Image Support

Database Image Support

Database Image Support

AMS Connect’s Database module now allows Image Field types.  When adding a new field, you can select image as an option for field type.  Once this field is added you can place this into your list and record view just like any other database field. When adding an image to a record you have the option to rotate the image as needed.  Additionally, the system can support any bitmap photo type (e.g. jpg, gif, png, bmp).  The site will automatically size the image to a maximum dimension of 1024.  So if the image is wider then tall, then the width will be 1024 pixels and the height will size proportionally (and vice versa).  The size you see when the image appears in the form is 128 pixels as a maximum.  When you click the image you will be able to view the larger size from any view (list or form).

Home Page Editing

Working with Home Page content directly through the site via online editing is now fully supported, though the legacy option of customizing your Home Page content utilizing a Word document is still supported. This update adds the following capabilities:
  • Image support;
  • Home Page Content for the Site Home Page (not just the Workspace Home Pages); and
  • Site Home Pages are now managed under Site Layouts so that different Home Page setting can be applied to different layouts (previously there was one Home Page setting for the entire site — note: that menu option is now gone).
Users with the appropriate permissions can select the Edit button on the top right of the home page selected for editing, From there editing tools will appear for direct editing without download. AMS Connect Version 6.7
