Table 1. FILE_UPLOAD_BEHAVIOR Standard Choice Values
Value Applicable Product Description
Basic {Default} Civic Platform Citizen Access This mode requires users to install Silverlight runtime on their computers for file uploading. If you activate this mode, the Windows Open dialog opens for users to select one or multiple files from a single folder to upload files to a record. For illustration, see Figure 1.
Advanced Civic Platform Citizen Access This mode requires users to install Silverlight runtime on their computers. If you activate this mode, a Batch Upload or File Upload window opens for users to select files from one or more folders, and then upload the selected files to a record. For illustration, see Figure 2.
Html5 Citizen Access In this mode, users need not install Silverlight runtime for file uploading in Citizen Access, and the upload behavior is the same as in the Basic mode.
Note:

Citizen Access applies the Html5 mode if you activate the Html5 mode, no matter whether you activate another mode (Basic/Advanced) or not.


Note:

If you enable section 508 accessibility mode in Civic Platform and Citizen Access, the file upload behavior is always Basic regardless of the Standard Choice configuration.

When a contract inspector or self-certified inspector uploads inspection results in Citizen Access, the file upload behavior can only be Advanced or Html5. The Html5 mode provides the File Upload window which is similar to the one provided in the Advanced mode but has minor UI differences.
