Is it possible to upload a Captivate .swf file in Creation Station that links to other files (such as .mp4 files) that Captivate includes in a single folder when one publishes a Captivate project, so that those links are maintained and it can pull the .mp4 files into the captivate project when in use?

If this is not currently possible, can I put in a feature request that the ability to upload a zipped folder of a Captivate project be supported?

Thanks for any help or feedback.

Unfortunately no, this is not something the platform supports. However if this is an important need in your district I encourage you to speak with your SAFARI Montage Account Executive so this can be considered as a new feature in a future release. Thanks!

Thanks for the response.

I should say that I did figure out that the zipped file containing the complete package can be uploaded as an "Ancillary Attachment," so our workaround is to render an MP4 version that we upload, then attach the zipped file as an attachment to that item, so users can at least download that package and open it on their computer.
