I recently created a custom form which enables me to check in new content with limited metadata, set the file name, extension, and actual contents of that file. I have since extended this to have a “batch” upload, allowing me to specify how many content items I want created, along with the contents of the file. This interface allows me to rapidly create specific content with specific metadata very quickly.
And hit run. The end result is the form all filled in.
After a successful submit, we can go ahead and run a search to see the result.
And the info page.
These little tips can rapidly speed up development time by eliminating most of the data entry copy/paste work. I hope you find this useful for any projects you may be working on!
