If a file is uploaded which has a format different from the supported image formats (see Section 18.104.22.168, “Image-files”), then the file will be stored as an unparsed data file. Such files should only be uploaded to file-folders (see Section 22.214.171.124, “File-folder”). You can upload an image with the "Upload File" function available in the context menu (see Section 126.96.36.199, “File upload and download”). In contrast to image files, there are no restrictions on the filenames of unparsed data files.
A data-file has the same properties than a content- or section-node (see Section 188.8.131.52, “Section-nodes”), e.g. it has a title, an alias name, an applicability expression, a workflow status and a progress value. The workflow status of a data-file can be manually set by the user to indicate whether work on the file is already finished. The progress value can be used to provide an estimation in percentage of how much of the work has already been done.
