This is not about using ContentType to identify the type of file (.pdf,.doc,.xls etc). This is about identifying which type of company form/document my user has uploaded. For instance, I have an app which manages our external partners. And for those partners we need such things as a govt Regulations Form or a Tax Form.
I would love to be able to identify which type of document a user has uploaded in order for the system to identify what has been obtained and what still needs to be gotten from the partner.
I was thinking that maybe creating multiple Notes & Attachment type of related lists which were specific to the type of forms (ie a Tax Form related list ; a Regulations related list) would do this since I could identify if any of those lists had anything in them. But I don't know if that's feasible.
The only other way I can think of possibly accomplishing this is to prompt the user to check a box indicating the type of document he is uploading. But that isn't really what I'm looking for.
Should I maybe be approaching this with Content instead of Attachments ?
Thank you very much for any feedback.
