Attachments on Documents ingested into CMOD
« on: October 08, 2020, 12:49:30 PM »
Probably been asked before, but am curious if a document can be loaded into CMOD with an attachment.  I never really thought about it until recently.  Thanks in advance for your reply.

Attachment or an annotation?

CMOD doesn't support the idea of attachments, but you could build an Application that provided that functionality, if all of the attachments were the same format.

You guys are always great to answer quickly.  Thank you for that!  Yes, it's an attachment.  I didn't think CMOD supported that, I just wanted to be sure.  We get asked that alot.

So, as I said, you could add another Application Group, or more Applications to an existing Application Group, and simply load the attachments in.  The only tricky part is that you would need one Application for each document type for attachments - One for CSV, one for word, one for JPEG images, etc. etc.

Can you describe your use case a little more?
