  1. Create a file repository app that automatically displays the files in a list and hyperlinks them

    I have just spent countless hours migrating content from another website into Schoolwires. There are many hyperlinked documents on the other site, and I have had to individually hyperlink each document or place it in a file library app. I would like to see a repository that would allow me to upload files and they would be automatically displayed in a list and hyperlinked. Files would be easy to manage because they would just need to be added to the folder or removed from it.

  2. Configure Centricity To Automatically Update Links To Files

    If a file is moved from the root of a section's "Files and Folders" area to a subfolder, all the links to that file are broken have to be re-created. It would be great if Centricity could track those links and ask the user if he/she would like to update all links to the file when moved. Dreamweaver, FrontPage, etc. do this and I assumed Centricity did too, but I found out the hard way that it doesn't.

  4. Add a "Replace" option under the more drop down

    This would allow for replacement of hyperlinked documents that need to be updated on a regular basis without having to delete and upload all the while making sure that the name is exactly the same so the link will still function.

  5. Allow To Upload Files To Specific Folder

    When creating a hyperlink, allow the chooser to navigate to the folder they want the linked file to be uploaded to as part of the process rather than just dumping it in the root of that section's "Files and Folders" area. This would also be a nice feature to have in the Upload and Mass Upload area. The reason for this is that currently, if a user moves a file to a subfolder, they have to go back and re-create the link to the file in the new location.

  6. Moving Files/Folders to a Different Section

    Currently, the move function in the Files and Folders tool does not allow you to move files between sections like you can with pages.

  7. Easy photo and file delete

    It would be great to be able to do a batch delete of designated photos and files in the Files and Folders instead of deleting one at a time.

  8. View stats on PDFs

    I really need a way to view stats on specific files housed on our site, such as required reports, specifically PDFs.

  9. I would like to create a drop box for documents or designate a special mailbox to submit documents.

    It would be helpful to have a special address (url) or email to share with select audiences for document submission.

  10. Add sub-folders to the file list when browsing for a file

    Instead of clicking the triangle to expand the folder and see sub-folders, make it so sub-folders appear in list along with the individual documents. Would make it much easier on the end-user.

  11. replace file breaks link

    Currently, the link to a particular file includes the name of the file. If someone has created a shortcut directly to that file and the file is replaced with one of a different name, the link is broken. Could files get a unique designation like your webpages do? That way the file could be updated without breaking the link.

  12. Bring back ability to limit section size

    In C1 we could set a default section size limit and then manually manage sections as they reached that limit. We now have users uploading 800MB+ videos and filling up our web server.

  13. Allow files to be shared across sections. I

    It's very inconvenient in an extremely large subsite that files can't be shared across the subsite. Now they either have to be available to the entire site which isn't feasible in an extremely large site like HISD. It would be nice that if an individual school could share it's icons and images across the subsite.

  14. Allow Homepage Editors to upload files & folders

    When my homepage editors are adding quicklinks to the home page, SchoolWires doesn’t provide an upload button to the Files & Folders location so they can upload a ‘PDF’ file, the academic calendar, for example……There is no ‘Tools’ tab or ‘Files & Folders’ button anywhere to be found in the home page area for home page editors…..It just seems like, if a user has the authority to add links to the home page, they should also have the authority to upload files for those links….Otherwise, all they can do is add links to other websites, or other areas of our…

  15. Remember the last folder you uploaded, saved or opened a file from and return user to that area instead of the root

    Typically when you upload,save, or open files in most software programs when you repeat the process you return to the same folder that you were just using. In school wires it always defaults, then I have to search through all my folders to get back to where I am uploading files from

  16. Allow Permissions for Files and Folders

    Right now you can protect pages so that they are limited to individuals or groups but files are not.

  17. Auto Expand Site Files folder in Files & Folders

    Auto Expand the Site Files folder in Files & Folders but don't autoexpand the subfolders. With a large number of folders & subfolders finding the appropriate one to upload a file to is inconvenient.

  18. Allow the upload of exe files with files & folders. If this is for security, allow it to be overridden for key users at a minimum.

    Allow the upload of exe files with files & folders. If this is for security, allow it to be overridden for key users at a minimum. Centricity1 allowed this and Centricity2 does not. We use our website to distribute legitimate software to our remote staff.

  19. Allow Renaming of Entire Filename (Including Extensions)

    It was frustrating to discover that in attempt to protect people from themselves, the file renaming feature in C2 prevents modification of the file extension. Having to download a file, rename it accordingly, reupload it, and delete the original is a frustrating and unnecessarily time-consuming process.
