  1. Preview of pictures

    Preview of pictures

    When a collection contains pictures, it would be more convenient for the users if they can quickly preview them, "gallery-style" (like in Google Drive)

    • Batch renaming files

      Batch rename of files

      When I upload a batch of files, I then need to rename them one by one, in order to match the naming convention. It would be helpful to have a way to batch-rename them. For example, by
      1) Selecting all the documents
      2) Entering the "fixed" part of the name (e.g. "2017_12_01-WorksopTajFIS_Shenriod_")
      3) Indicating a variable prefix or suffix (e.g. increment by one, starting with "01")

      Alternative options for automated naming could be:
      "keep the name of each document but add 2017_12_01 as a prefix"
      "keep the name of each document but remove the *.doc at…

      • Uploaded documents on the current page

        I would be great to see the document that was uploaded right now on the current page instead of searching for it.

        • Search box in trash

          why not include search in trash as well? It will easier to find deleted files to restore them.

          • Download of whole folders

            Would be great to have the possibility to download the whole folder! Stephane shared a folder with me and I cannot download it as a whole.

            • Save as... from Office / OpenOffice directly to K-DMS

              I just discovered a pretty cool new feature of LibreOffice ( https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/63544/how-to-use-remote-service-in-libreoffice-51/ ): we can now directly "save as" to a remote location, such as Google Drive, Alfresco, Nuxeo (the somehow direct competitors of K-DMS). Realistic to have a similar tool for K-DMS?

              M$ Office: as a plugin
              OpenOffice / LibreOffice: as a plugin or directly as a contribution to the source code? That might also be a nice leverage to promote K-DMS if "save into your K-DMS" was a default option of the future releases of LibreOffice...

              • Make old version of documents accessible

                It is currently not possible to access an old version of a document (or to revert to an old version).

                I think this should be added to the pipeline of discussions for future dvlpt.

                Thanks!

                • Share many documents with one single link

                  *Share many documents with one single link*

                  We will have a big conference in June and we want to store the presentations on the K-DMS (and make them public). If I want to share those X presentations with people who don't have a K-DMS account, I need to send X links, which is not practical if I have 25 presentations.

                  It would be super practical to be able to make a multi-selection (select X documents or select all public documents in a project, e.g.) and to get a single link to all of them.

                  So when someone (without account) uses…

                  • The customization options

                    We are using different k-dms servers and we often have to switch from one server to another. Sometimes it is difficult to recognize server only by differ of folder structure.
                    I suggest making option of customizing user interface with feature of adding information about the project with logo or picture on title page. That will make identification more recognizable for users.
                    Best,

                    • Explicitly relate documents that have a llink to each other

                      Here the next golden feature :-)

                      When uploading documents that "have something to do with each other", I would like to be able to explicitly relate them.

                      Ex.

                      - Docs "A", "B" and "C" are the proceedings of the "Conference on Natural Capital Accounting". If I retrieve doc "A" during a search, I would like to be able to see explicitly that docs "B" and "C" are related to it (even if they concern a completely different topic and thus don't appear in my search results)

                      - Doc "X" is a translation of doc "Z". When I retrieve "X", I…

                      • Feature to shorten URLs in K-DMS / KLINK

                        Links to K-DMS or KLINK documents can be long and not always "copy-paste friendly". Would be nice to add an option to shorten the links.

                        Ideally (for privacy reasons), the link shortener should be embedded in the K-DMS / KLINK and not use an external commercial service (bit.ly, google...). For example: https://frama.link/ based on https://lstu.fr/

                        • Add an option to make all documents to a project public by default

                          The policy for the SELLER project (and sub-projects) is that all documents should be public. https://eba.klink.asia/dms/documents/groups/130

                          Since there is no option to specify that yet, Albina has to manually make all the new documents public, on a regular basis (every day, week...). This is of course sub-optimal.

                          When creating a new project / collection, there should be an option "all documents uploaded in this project / collection will be public by default" and another option "also apply to sub-projects"

                          If the value is changed in the future, already public documents will remain public. Only newly uploaded documents will be private…

                            • microsite domain name, can it be amended?

                              Hello,

                              pioneers of the microsite find it as a more user-friendly entry point into the system for pasture network users. They would like to know if it is possible to change from https://eba.klink.asia/dms/projects/pasture-network to something shorter (e.g. https://pasture-network.klink.asia)?

                              Thanks,
                              Albina

                              • Integration with Bibliography Tools

                                is it possible to connect k-link/KDMS with a personal/ privat bibliography like CITAVI or MENDELEY ?
                                Because this would makes it easier than uploading single papers for researcher.

                                Thanks,

                                • I would like to suggest a "interactive conference calendar"

                                  Hi,

                                  my suggestion is a kind of conference calendar about k-link related topics.
                                  For instance biodiversity, soil protection, climate change adaptation e.g. which are held in Central Asia.
                                  It should be accessible also for external researchers, just to know which kind of conference is going to take place in Central Asia.
                                  Probably they can/will participate on conferences of different klink partners, which they are not part of a internal information network and inspire the specific conference with their contribution.

                                  Additionally,they need to present their results e.g. on international and regional conferences.
                                  And it could be also interesting for klink partners,…

                                  • More than 12 results on one page

                                    It would be great to the option to switch to more than 12 documents on the screen, as it complicates the search. (Meanwhile the upper filter list is not working properly...)

                                      Hi,

                                      it will be great if the system can remember selected documents when users move to next page (of same subcollection). At now, the system forgets selection of files from previous page.

                                      Thanks,
                                      Albina

                                      • translation of search queries and collections

                                        Hi,

                                        another suggestion was voiced by EbA team yesterday: it will be great to have search queries automatically translated from Ru to En and other way round. And also it will be nice for UI to recognize the main language and display collections in the most suitable language (En or Ru). Thanks,

                                        Best,
                                        Albina

                                        • naming convention + title in edit

                                          Dear Albina,

                                          I have one question about document naming. You mentioned to use the format: YYYT-MM-DD_title_author_language_version

                                          However, most academic (and non-academic) publications are always cited by Author _ Year_ Title. This is the standard referencing convention and is often also extended to file names. Also the titles of most of these documents are far too long to be included in full in the file name, so this has to be very much abbreviated for the file name. Under Edit (when we click on the files) – there is a place for the abstract and author names, but nowhere for the…
