Adding Documents, Images and Multimedia
A type of Component are documents, images and other multimedia files. Any type of file can be managed by Frontis, for example:
- Documents (MS Office, PDF etc…)
Image files can exist already on your disk, or Frontis can read them directly from your scanner or digital camera
To create a file component, select the option from the Record admin menu, or if from an empty record from the options presented on the Record screen.
You can import files from a number of locations
- Browse to a location on your hard drive and select the file. You can select a Zip file containing a number of images and Frontis will import and then unpack the file and process each image individually.
- You can acquire the images directly form an imaging device such as a scanner or digital camera (extra licence applies for the 'TWAIN' plugin).
- For very large numbers of files, you can upload the images to the remote server using 'FTP', Frontis will then process them externally. This option requires extra server configuration so you need to talk to your Frontis representative.
Once the file has been imported fill in the properties as usual.
