Thumbnail Images for Uploaded files

Hi,

One of our clients asked is it was possible to have thumbnail images of the files they attach to forms...I'm guessing she meant similar to what we see in the project description area. Word docs look like word doc, PDF files are the red PDF icons, etc.

Thanks!

AJ

Hi Annalisha! Thanks for sharing this idea. I'd love to learn more about the use case for this and how it would help your clients. Looking forward to hearing more! :)

It was a request from a client during our external beta testing of the request forms we plan to use. I don't have a use case besides that, sorry. Thanks for the reply :)

We would want thumbnails to appear on the Dashboard view. We use the Dashboard as a Trello/Planner style Kanban board. Optimally, the most recently uploaded image would be the chosen image for the thumbnail. See ticket #567323 for an example I uploaded.

Not having pictures in the dashboard is a serious impediment for our visually oriented design team!

Hi Steve, welcome to the forums 🙌! Thank you for the suggestion here, we pass all feedback from the forums to our Product Team and we'll let you know if there are any updates on this. 

I know Anna suggested this to you, but for others: I want to mention the Board View. I know it's not ideal for your use case, but hopefully, it works for someone else out there!

P.S. That's a great profile picture.

Hi Stephanie, yeah, we know about boards; that is the look I crave! Right now everything that matters is in one board, which is super silly. I know we could break the "Active" board up with custom statuses (statusi?) if we leveled up, which is probably not going to happen. So just carry over the boards look to Dashboards, OK? Thanks. p.s. Chewie icon stolen from Chris Wahl. At least I bought his shirt first.

@Steve Personally, I think it should definitely be statusi. Got it and thank you!

Hi, we've switched to business edition and will be using Boards more for Kanban'ing than Dashboards... but... PDFs still need thumbnails in the task description, the comments and the Board view. Just the first page of the PDF. After googling "open source PDF thumbnail generator," I would infer that it'd be a relatively easy and cheap improvement.
