How to send a file attachement with notification emails

Post by cimalink » Tue Nov 25, 2014 3:26 pm

Hello,

I'm using OpenKM Version: 6.3.0 (build: 8156)
When i upload a new file into OpenKM, a notification email is sent to subscibed users, containing a link to the document (this is great).
But I need the file to be sent in attachment in the notification email.
I've searched the forum and the web and i can't find how i can do that.
Anybody got an idea?

Basically notification, when create or edit new document only advice user in text mode, not with attachement. Could be implemented this feature with and extra checkbox, but basically we've thought in almost cases when you want to notify something you want to send a link not an attachment. That's the reason why is you show contextual menu or file menu you'll find separate option to send attahchment.

If you want to get it on 6.3 should be changed source code to include this option.

Thanks for your answer.
I understand your reasons.
But i have users with really old version of Java, they cannot upgrade due to Strict user policies in their company.
They have big problem with OpenKM, so i want them to receive the file in attachement.
I will explore other options.

Thanks

The idea should be send something like it http://wiki.openkm.com/index.php/Direct_link but for It, I think should be modified the source code because now only allow to process ${doc.url} and ${doc.path}
