Gathering/Exposing File Properties

asked on June 22

Hi All,

 

In windows you can see the file properties by right clicking and selecting properties:-

 

 

Particularly information around resolution and dimensions etc. for pictures. Also other information for other docs such as author etc.

In Laserfiche file properties you don't get the same information:-

 

We've had a request from a customer to capture these properties, or at least make them viewable in Laserfiche. I'm guessing you might be able to do something with workflow and SDK to capture these into metadata fields, but the customer thinks that file information like this should be available natively.

 

Is there a way to do this?

 

Cheers!

Chris

You can get this via a lookup to the doc table:

The creation date in Laserfiche is the date when the document was created in the repository. Last modified date always refers to changes made to the document in the repository.

However, some customers do want to keep the record of when the file was originally created. Original creation and modification dates are available as tokens at import time, but not afterwards.

I'm assuming we're talking Windows Client here.

Personally, I've never found any way to get the level of detail you are looking for in the client.

There is some information about image size that is displayed on the bottom of the image viewer while you are viewing an image:

And I do think you are right that leveraging workflow and a script could get some or all of this information.  I haven't done it before, but you could probably write a workflow that gets the desired information for each page and pushes it into a multi-value field on the entry.
