how to organize the documentation: smartlinks?

Post by buttle » Fri May 17, 2019 12:51 pm


I've recently installed Mayan to get a feel for it, and to see if I can make our project work with it.

I'm a bit confused about how to organize the documentation, so if you don't mind, I'll explain what we need to do.

There is a project in our neighborhood that is making a compilation of old black and white photos that people have in their Photo Albums at home.
So, these people (the Participants) come to our 'office' and we scan the photos, and at the same time we interview them and record the audio, so that way the photos get a historical context.

As I see it there are three basic document types.
1. Photo
2. Audio
3. Participant.

I think (hopefully) I am understanding Indexes, Cabinets, and Tags correctly. But I get the feeling I need to link these three types of documents together with smartlinks. However I do not know how to do that. The documentation about smart links is not enough for me.

Any help would be great!
Thank you.
