Hyperlinks - Download v Preview

Question asked by systec on Sep 10, 2009
We found that our users wanted a choice of links on every document in the site i.e. a link to download the file or a link to preview the file. Some larger documents can take a while to convert to flash while downloading is quicker. We customised every page in Share so that a standard now exists across the site where a document thumbnail will link to the preview page while the document title/name link allows one to download the file. We also included the size of the file in brackets whereever we could and provided our guidelines regarding downloading v previewing.

I'm not sure whether others have encountered such requests, but i thought it was a very reasonable request and providing a choice can only be a good thing. How does one go about getting ideas like this voted on and applied to the original source?
