CIFS Client Pop-up

Question asked by rtucker on May 7, 2009

Is there a way to set a rule so that when an item is dragged and dropped into the CIFS view (via Windows Explorer) to have a dialog box show up that allows for fine-tuning the parameters? I would need to then submit the form/dialog box and have the changes applied to the content item.

I'm thinking the only way to do this is to create desktop action, require the user to drop the item on the action which will pop up a browser window and take them to the Alfresco web interface showing the details. From there they would adjust the parameters of the document and submit it.

Am I missing something? Is there an easier way to do it? I don't want to require the user to have to drop the file on the desktop action and then pop an internet browser. Can I pop up a simple dialog box (like the Windows Message box) but include some drop-downs and a submit button.

Thanks!
