#419 closed enhancement (worksforme)

allow bulk file upload directly into a separate directory

Reported by: base Owned by: Johan Enell

Currently the zip/jar bulk file upload will deposit files in the user's root directory only. This is slightly awkward if several tens or hundreds of items are to be uploaded simultaneously and these belong to the same experiment (and the user might want to keep them together in the same directory).

At the moment groups of files can be selected by filename by using a regular expression and then moved to the new directory but this won't work for groups of files with variable names, which leaves a user having to transfer them to their directory manually one by one.

The first statement that the zip uploader only can unpack to the user's root directory is incorrect. The files will be unpacked in the currently selected directory.

Then, I don't understand the rest of the message about the regular expressions and moving files, etc. I think it would be simpler to arrange the files in the correct directory layout before zipping and uploading the zip file to BASE. The directory layout will be preserved.
