Add Object to CAREO: Upload Media


It seems like a minor thing, but the functionality it provides is quite important. Until now, the "Add Object" form in CAREO assumed the media was already web-accessible somewhere. If it wasn't, you were expected to get it onto the web somehow (FTP to your own server, iDisk, whatever...).

I just added a feature (at the request of our MedCIS folks) that allows users to upload media to our server, and return the URL of the published resource into the correct field in the metadata entry form. Seems like a little thing, but this takes out the FTP, verification of URL, etc... Easy Peasy.

Here's what it looks like:

Note that any user of CAREO can add objects (metadata AND media now). All they have to do is log in and hit Add Object.
