Add/Remove file from multiple file field

QuestionsAdd/Remove file from multiple file field
Matthew asked 3 years ago

Hi,

I have a multiple file field which I can successfully attach multiple files at once and display these as icons in the grid. What my end users would like is the ability to add more files to this field or delete only some of them after the fact. Currently when editing the field all I see is a "Reset" button which just blanks it out, there is no option to "Add" or "Edit".

What we are doing at the moment is downloading all the files to desktop then resetting the field and then reattaching everything. This isn't ideal as it's more time consuming and also leaves copies of the originals on the server. Is there a way to have the "Add" / "Edit" options?

Thanks

This seems to be very genuine requirement, but unfortunately it is not supported now. We'll be working on it and updating the status on this ticket.

This is taking a lot of time and may need complete re-write of upload module.
One solution could be to use different file upload columns for each upload. This will allow removing (reseting) specific uploaded file and server cleanup as well.

no worries Abu, thanks for trying to get it to work.
