I have a document library. I want to be able to add supporting documents to a document(I am using a custom content type based on document). Ideally I would like to add them as attachments so everything is contained in one place.
Sadly I don’t think is possible.
What ways can you think of to be able to upload additional documents to a content type?
I am happy to do some coding just need to be pointed in the right direction.
I will try and explain the problem in more detail.
I have a document that needs to go through an approval process. This document may need some evidence in the form of supporting documents to confirm what the document content is correct i.e. If facts and figures are included the source document for the facts and figures should be included as well.
I understand that document sets allow the grouping of documents however I don’t believe you can highlight one document as being the main. You could add a column to say if main document and make sure only 1 document in the set is set. However I think the UX would be more complex for the user as they need to do things in multiple steps.
I am currently leaning towards creating a Custom Field type that can handle the file upload. Store the document in a separate list. I then have control of the look and feel.
I don’t know if it possible to auto generate a folder in document library (using the Doc ID of the document as the folder name). Then include a web part in the view and edit form to show the document library in that folder.
