User download multiple image from collection

Hi all,

I want to give the connected user the possibility to download (or at least receive a link via email in order to download) an archive of multiple images stored in a collection.
I’ve searched many places. Seen the “&dl” trick at the end of the image url to download a single file, but didn’t find a way to download multiple images file at a time.

Is there a way to achieve such feature ? Ideally using Adalo build-in features, but I’m not against external tool / component if needed or better suited…

Thank you for your insights.

I would like to know how that works as well!

Hey @Brandworks,

You will need to use a 3rd party integration tool for this, something like Make (Integromat).

The scenario could look like:

  • webhook listening to custom action call from Adalo. In the custom action call you need to send the criteria, which images would you like to archive
  • Adalo module(s) which get the images (in fact you will need to have an Iterator which iterates the images)
  • Download File module
  • Archive create module
  • Upload archive file to some storage
  • Return back the link to the Custom action via webhook response / or update record in Adalo database to indicate that the job is finished.

This is a very brief description of the scenario without all the details, but hopefully it gives the idea how to solve the issue.
