I've been using RM for a little bit now and have a question about Media file storage and workflow methods. I've basically used Zhangrau's method for a structure layout. Thank you Zhangrau for the insight!! As seen from the attachment, I have lots of folders. I also have about 100 files in 0New that I've scanned in. I've scanned everything in as a .jpeg as that seems what the system recognizes easily. Tried .pdf and seemed to have trouble getting inserted/attached to RM. I just let the scanning software name the file what it wanted to except for the prefix. For example, I scanned in several obituaries. I started the name with [obit] and let it go. I saved them as [obit].jpeg, [obit] 1.jpeg, [obit] 2.jpeg, etc. My next step, that I haven't done yet, is to go through them, and put a meaningful name to them, attach them to the person or event that they need attached to, then move them to their rightful folder. I understand the move will break the link, but I can then just run the media link fixer.
That said, anyone have some insight into a better workflow or is this pretty much the workflow with media?.....short of storing it all in one big globular area.
Thanks for your insight.
Ok...couldn't figure out how to attach a screenshot, or .pdf, or anything here so here's the layout (in text)....
