Simple Address for Media Files


I would like to see the Simple Address feature extended to media files.

Our particular use case scenario is that we have hundreds of PDFs, and our call center requests short urls to provide over the phone. This is common in our industry. We're currently using a custom redirect gadget to create these, but it's a separate administrative task. It would be nice to have editors create these as they are adding and updating pdfs. Keeping track of these is a hefty chore, and we're constantly having to fix broken redirects when the files are updated,

Thank you for your consideration

Hi Paul

A quick solution could be to automate your current solution by adding a simple address  property to the media thats marked as required in the model. Then using hook onto the Publishing event and create a redirect automatically.
