An customer has asked me it is possible to create an permanent "file request link" without given the Filr an e-mail address.
To according the european GDPR, an application must be transmitted in encrypted form. And for this the customer wants to use the Filr. He wants that applicants can upload their curriculum vitae to the Filr without sending each applicant an mail with the Filr file request link.

Therefor here the idea request:
- Extant the file request method
> Make a file request usable with an link instead of an e-mail target
> Option: Make an file request link multible usable, maybe let the user specify how often the link can be used
> Extension: To avoid multible files with the same name, ask the user which upload the file, for his name or e-mail address
> Extension: Make file requests on netfolders, where the user have the rights to do this

  • Need this too, it's what we had in mind when requesting similar idea https://ideas.microfocus.com/MFI/novell-filr/Idea/Detail/1414
    Today this still needs a link to be send out to the user. We really need a way for user to drop a file. For this we may want to leverage the workflow engine that is in Filr (inherited from Vibe) so the user that drops the file can select a "destination" for it's file(s). This can be a user or a department, etc. These then get notified by Filr a file is left for them by a user. The user that drops the file(s) received a mail notification he/she has dropped the files succesfully (that may be case we require such).

  • Marco - would you be expect more than one submitters to upload one file each to the location?

  • Hello Devadas, short yes. The idea from our customer is that he can publish this link on an website for the vacancy from his company.

  • sry I have inadvertently press the "flag" ... from you. Here the comment if this will be erased ...
