For the acquisition of files and images, SeaTable provides two column types of the same name. The image column is a restricted file column, because it accepts only special image file formats. This restriction can be very handy in certain use cases.
Image column #
The Image column type stores any number of image files in BMP, GIF, ICO, JPG, PNG, SVG and TIF file formats. The Image column is thus a file column restricted to image file formats and always offers an image preview in the form of a thumbnail.
File column #
The File column type stores any number of files of any file type. Additional functions such as renaming, selecting for deletion and downloading and editing via online editor facilitate working with the entered files.
Current restrictions #
- SeaTable's search cannot search for the filename of a file.
- File and image columns cannot currently be used in formulas.
