Allow users to access multiple, linked files with one-click?

Aug 19, 2013 6:34 AM

In our Help application, we have a list of documents a user may want to download. They are all PDF files. Currently, we have the hyperlink properties set for each one to open in a new window, where the user can then print or save to a local computer. This works fine; however, I find it clunky user-experience when a user needs to download multiiple files. I understand that RH is not designed as a document repository, but does anyone know if there is a hidden gem in RH10 that allows you to create multiple file download options? I would like a check box in front of each file, which would allow a user to select multiple files to open/download.

    Possible? Yes. Easy? No.

     

     

     

    In the case you describe, you need a server side scripts that zips up all required PDF documents that you can then download at once. There is no way to do this in WebHelp only.
