Today, we’ve introduced a couple of exciting features to TeamDesk’s resource management.
Firstly, we’ve implemented folder support. Now you can organize files into folders, enhancing file organization and opening up interesting scenarios when hosting web pages as resources.
Webpages typically store related assets in sub-folders, such as images in the /img folder, stylesheets in the /css folder, and scripts in the /js folder. While you can store all files flat in one folder and modify all references, if you’re using third-party code, you can store files as the author originally intended, avoiding unnecessary modifications. Below is an example of a free website template file uploaded to TeamDesk resources.
To address a file in a folder, just add the full path after the …/res.aspx – e.g.,
There is one special case — if a folder contains a file named index with any extension and you address the folder without specifying the file name, we’ll select the index file for you. For instance, if there’s an index.html in the /path/to/ folder, trying to access
will actually select
If there are multiple ‘index’ files in the folder, the results are undetermined.
Multiple File upload
Additionally, we’ve upgraded resource management to support multiple file uploads. Now, when choosing files, you can select more than one. If you select a single ZIP archive, there’s an option to unpack it and use its contents as individual files, retaining the archive’s folder structure if present.
Alternatively, by not checking the Unpack ZIP archive box, you can upload the archive intact.
Use the Upload to box to specify the folder where the file(s) should go — either choose from existing folders or type the name of a new one.
Finally, we’ve added a Resources tab to the domain-level settings of TeamDesk/dbFLEX Enterprise editions. Only domain administrators (users with Manage Account privilege) can access the resource management page.
Domain resources are available at https://yourdomain/secure/res.aspx/path/to/file URLs. Non-public resources require user authorization, while public resources are open to all internet users.
Enjoy these new features!
