With the updated DJ-Classifieds Files Attachments App you can let users upload private documents for the administrator.
This feature is super useful if you want to let users upload documents for instance to validate them (for example sending ID or other documents scans to validate the user). Of course, it's not limited to that, and you can let them upload any files with this feature.
How to enable attachments in the user's profile
First, go to your Joomla backend and go to Plugins -> DJ-Classifieds - Files Attachments and enable the feature Uploader in profile.
and Save the settings.
How to use attachments in profile from the user's perspective
Once the feature is enabled in the plugin each user when editing the profile will see new uploader for the files:
- here's where the user can upload files (with a click or just by drag and drop feature)
- the uploaded files are visible over the uploader
- once files are uploaded user clicks "Save" to send photos or documents to the Administrator.
How website administrator can check the attachments uploaded by user
- E-mail notification to the Administrator
Go to your Joomla backend and go to Plugins -> DJ-Classifieds - Files Attachments and enable the feature Profile admin email.
This way the admin will get an email notification informing about the new document uploaded on Profile. Each document added in the profile comes in the email as an attachment
- Possibility of filtering users "with an attachment"
The list of DJ-Classifieds user-profiles contains an icon of "Safety-pin". It means they have an attachment added. The website admin can filter them also using the box in the right top corner (with attachment / without attachment).
- Attachments tab in the user's profile
Web site administrator can also check users' uploaded files by going to Components -> DJ-Classifieds -> User Profiles,
opening the user's profile that needs to be checked and clicking the Attachments tab.
