Add Files to Matter Content Using Drag and Drop (legacy)
Uploading multiple files for a specific Matter can be easily accomplished using your computer's drag and drop functionality from the Matter Content section of the Matter page layout.
Overview of Functionality
- Users can upload new Content.
- Users have options to specify a Workspace and other meta data values such as Account/Matter/Category/Type (and any custom fields).
- Users have the option to delete Content (via a Delete button).
- The Tree on the left side shows records in the following hierarchy: Library -> Category.
When the Library node is selected the list of Content filters is based on Library selected. Likewise, if a Category is selected the Content will be filtered on both Library and selected Category.
- On new Upload of Content, if a Library is selected then that Library is used automatically to store the Content.
- There is a link to View Content as well as Upload “New Version” of content. Upload new Version works same way as new upload but with a change such that it requires a reason for uploading a new version to be specified when storing new Version.
- If grid display is too short to display the entire Content list, there is a link to make the Content module display in extended view.
