    Hi Lemuel

    Well yes you do see it online... so I guess you have what you want

    why not test it ie upload a file and see if it works for you

    OK?

    thanks john

    I've uploaded 4 files and Im trying to see them online (without being forced to download them). But every link seems to force me to download. None of them to just visualize.

    Hi Lemuel

    If you're on a mobile / tablet then you will see them "online" ie click / open

    Otherwise you will clcik to download and click to open... ie as per most other apps

    Do you have an app you can give as an example of what you mean by " to just visualize."

    Thanks for your suggestion (Just not sure what it is yet ;-)

    best wishes

    Hi Ed, I think that once uploaded, an image file should be able to be viwed right on the page, tablet/mobile or not, like a lightbox application (heres an example http://lokeshdhakar.com/projects/lightbox2/ ) or even a simple popup, without being forced to download the file.

    As a user, I expect that a popup window (or a new window) to be opened when clicking on the name of a file I've uploaded, showing the content of the file. If I want to download a file, I expect a download button as a additional option, not the standard behaviour to see the files. Explaining in another way, since dooster its an online app I expect to be able to see the uploaded files on dooster interface, and not be forced to download the files. Thats what I mean.
    To be able to view the uploaded files on the collaboration online app (ConceptShare, Approval Manager, and others ) is a common thing. I just thought Dooster would have it too.

    Hope i've made myself clear this time.

    And congrats for the tool.

    Lemuel is just right:
    Tools that state to be online or web tools should display content of files in the browser. So No downloading and need for other software to view....
    Even better built in simple online editing of the file and you have a perfect tool

    Kind regards
