We’re trying to solve a problem: We need to upload files to Elvis, but the files need to have some specific information associated with them (contact name, advertiser, publication in which the ad should appear, etc.) at the time of upload. Various external clients will use the upload system.
We’re wondering if the following workflow (or something like it) is a. possible, and b. the best way to accomplish this goal.
1. Embed a form within a website.
-Users would enter information in multiple fields.
-Users would also specify a file or files to be uploaded.
2. Parse the contents of those fields and convert them to Elvis metadata.
3. Upload files to Elvis with associated metadata using Elvis API.
Use Smart Mover to analyze the information in a given metadata field and move uploaded files into the appropriate folder while notifying the appropriate staffer.
Have any of you implemented something to provide a similar functionality? If so, what worked? What didn't?
