Widgets to upload and manage files
File widgets are used to insert file(s) into the detail of a record. The files can be those files already uploaded to Labii ELN & LIMS or the files in the local computer and uploaded directly in the widget.
Labii provides these file widgets to manage files.
Any type of file can be uploaded via the Files widget. All uploaded files can be downloaded.
The files widget also supporting the preview and editing. Please see the table below for the supports.
Labii is now supporting the versioning of the file. Whenever the file content is changed, a new version is created.
Labii can perform a real-time antivirus scan for all the files uploaded. The real-time scan is disabled in default. Change Settings -> Organization Detail -> enable_antivirus_scan = true to enable the real-time scan.
All files will have 3 status:
- Pending - pending for antivirus scan
- Clean - the file has been scanned and safe
- Infected - the file has been scanned and malware detected
The infected file will be locked and quarantined, and can not be previewed or downloaded. You will also receive a notification from the system when malware is detected.
The real-time antivirus scan will slow down the file uploading progress for around 20s.
All files uploaded after a record is signed will be locked to the most recent version. In the event that a file is further modified, the old version will still be displayed.
The Files widget can be used to upload, manage, and edit files. This widget has been redesigned to have the following features:
