We are talking about 15 committees over 20+ years. All our minutes are stored in various emails, so, in text format.
Estmated number of minutes: 1500+
Some have attachments... 100+?
What do you suggest I use in DNN to be able to store all these minutes and search for them....Separate files/documents? Content managed webpages? other /
Thank you for your suggestions.
Just in addition to Will's and David's posts and to save you some time googling...:
At a technical level and permissions level, if we chose to upload files as minutes as pdfs for example, are these files stored on the DNN server, or in the database? I wrote a document management application years ago and then I hated storing files in SQL, but then I was looking a millions of documents. Not the case here.
Whats are the limitations of each architecture.
The user experience, I guess, is: a committee has a minutes page, grouped by year and sorted by date. Click on a date and either a webpage opens or a pdf...I dont really care... or should I?
I addition to the options that Daniel listed for storing folders, there are also third-party folder providers out there that allow you to store the documents in all of the most popular cloud environments, UNC file shares, etc. So, it's really up to you and your budget. For that many files, it may be a good idea to use Azure or S3. We usually use Evotiva's DnnGlobalStorage folder provider. In fact, we're implementing another one right now.
