This is an interesting Topic Dave, we have the same requirement.
Another DAM solution we run (name withheld) still keeps the original images in the local folder, without re-locating.
Very important when you have a digital studio creating content for consumption. They work and update the assets directly from the file share, and a scheduled task then runs and updates previews and any additional metadata added during retouching etc.
The web interface is then deployed to everyone else across the business for review or previewing purposes etc.
Hopefully this functionality is in v2.0 :)
keep up the good work Nitai!!!!
We run 1.6.2 and I'm unable to see where this function is unless it's part of the workflow module?
I have used the Link to Content but only deals with a single asset at a time, but this for me fails (no assets appear see my settings in screenshot)
and the Add from server is not suitable as content gets renamed.
our other app, (c u m u l u s ) keeps the local folder structure intact and runs a update asset task every hour ;)
OK thanks, for the clarification
Well that is a blow as this is probably the most anticipated feature in 1.6.5, Folder Sync is surely a MUST have feature even if it is only manually triggered. :(
