'Copy' files from one Files directory to another? Nat  2018-10-16 12:19

Quick question: is it possible to 'copy' files from one @files directory within LabKey to another. The toolbar certainly allows for 'moving' files but how about copying?

Seems like just modifying the "move" function to add a checkbox allowing "copying" would be an easy fix?

Thanks !

Hi Nat,

Within the LabKey UI, the FileContent/WebDAV browser doesn't provide an option to copy files as you've seen.

There would have to be some more changes aside from modifying the move functionality, such as updating any accompanying metadata and dealing with things like S3 storage if the cloud module is being used, but if this is a feature you're interested in, please feel free to access the main MacCoss support portal and open a ticket there. We can then create a proper feature request under MacCoss for your interest.
