PM File Uploader - Request info
« on: January 30, 2018, 07:14:12 am »
What information do you need in order to add a new destination for the PM File Uploader?
Is it even possible to add a new destination at this point? (With a new version on the horizon)

I am meeting with several of our yearbook vendor regional reps Tues 2/6 to show them PM and how it works with our photo and yearbook workflow.

There two primary features I want to highlight for them:
1) Code replacement
-we want to be able to input captions w/CR and see if their software can interface/extract that info for yearbook photo captions when uploaded to their site.

2) File Uploader
-If I know what info they need, then I can see if PM can implement that into a file uploader option (like FTP, SmugMug, PhotoShelter, etc.).
-I will find out what fields their software uses for captions/names, etc, and address our data input to those fields and test.

What protocol does the destination server use?  If it is FTP, then you simply need to make a Connection Setting with your logon and server info and you should be good to go.  If it is some custom protocol that isn't already supported then you would need to write your own template.

I am waiting back from teh company we want to upload to. While I am waiting, I will check the manual for instructions on making a custom template.

Brent,

There are no instructions for making templates.  The templates built-into PM serve as the examples.  They're written in a language called "ruby".
