Make "attachments" a property
There are many reasons why attachments should be handled as fields of the type attachments rather than something on their own:
- First I should be able to set permissions to attachments the same way I do for properties when defining the worflow. I want to be able to send a document to someone so that he can edit the document, but not modify the attachments
- Second, I want to be able to have different permissions on different attachments. For example, If I send a native file and a pdf for a client, I may want the native to be read only, the pdf to be open for comments only, and the client to be able to add / edit a comment file in google sheet or google doc for example. In that case, with three attachment fields each one with different permissions I could manage this quite common case. Aconex / Incite is handling this easily. AODocs should.
I am also hoping for similar features and not only attachments, I wonder if descriptions, related items, etc. can also have permission settings.
Didn't try yet however seems the concept is very good
Yes having control on permission just like field would be good achievement.
This is top of my list.
Would also make my life easier. I spend a lot of time doing updates to the document as an administrator because I do not trust user's not to update attachments. I would love to give access to a role to maintain meta data, but not get tempted to tinker with attachments.
With attachement as a field, we would alors like to set we're waiting a PDF file.only or to set a picture type.
Also be useful to say that the attachement field is manadatory.
