Anyone know the text mode for a large thumbnail preview column in a PROOF APPROVAL report?

I have a Proof Approval report and I'm trying to add an additional column to display a preview (large thumbnail) of the document. I'm hoping it's not too many jumps to get from proof approval to document version to document large thumbnail.

Hey Monique,

 

So this is the only textmode I have, which will pull in a thumbnail on proof approval report, but not all file types are supported so not a great solution (namely pdf files, often the most proofed format!)

 

displayname=Thumbnail
image.valuefield=documentVersion:document:previewURL
textmode=true
type=image
valuefield=documentVersion:document:previewURL
valueformat=HTML

Are you able to achieve the same report requirements using a document version report instead? Thumbnail is natively available in this type of report (and PDF's supported).

 

Best Regards,

Rich.

Thanks, Richard this helps! Unfortunately, it only seems to work for select proofs; and I can't figure out the reason.

did you figure this out? I'm having the same issue. I think in my case, proofs with one file work, but multiple assets/sizes don't. 

What's interesting is the proofing tools makes thumbnails for everything, including webpages... so I wonder what those are called and how to index them.

I think it has something to do with the number of versions. Any proof with just one version renders with no issue but multiple versions result in the broken icon. Have not yet figured out a code update to point to the current document version and preview that
