Frequently Asked Questions

Media can be added to MediaPoint by first accessing MediaPoint with the RO you wish to attach media to selected. Once MediaPoint is accessed, you will select the “add” button on any tab in MediaPoint (Images, Scans, Audio, Misc, PDF). At that point, a file explorer window will appear and you will select the file you wish to add to the RO.

Alternatively, MediaPoint behaves like a typical file explorer window which means you can also drag and drop files into the MediaPoint window to add them.

MediaPoint will allow you to click and drag only (.jpg) images to the “Images” and “Scans” tabs in MediaPoint. You can also click and drag any PDFs to the “PDF” tab and any file type can be moved into the “Misc” tab including messages from Outlook.
MediaPoint can be accessed in Summit by either selecting the “Media” tab in the system module, or you can access MediaPoint by right-clicking the blue “Images” link which is found at the top of Summit in the administration information. Keep in mind that you will need to select the RO you wish to view or add media prior to opening MediaPoint.
Typically we recommend setting up a shared folder on your server called “Media” that will hold any data transferred to MediaPoint. This is usually done during the initial Summit install. Inside the “Media” folder we create on the server, we will create sub-folders for each of the available tabs in MediaPoint (Images, Scans, PDF, Video, Audio, Misc). Once an RO is created in Summit, a folder with the estimate number will be created in each of the sub-folders. This will store the images and scans for that RO.
Once the shared folder and sub-folders are created, Summit just needs to know the network path to follow to get to the content. To set these paths, log in to the administrator module from the Summit log in screen. Select the “Media Paths” tab and you will be directed to the media path setup. Next to each path is a small button with three dots on it. Select that button and a file explorer window will appear. Find the media sub-folders you created and enter that path. For example, your images path would be similar to S:\Media\Images. Do this for all the tabs you wish to use in MediaPoint (Images, Scans, PDF, Audio, Video, Misc) If the paths are valid, you will see the paths listed on the media tab in the system module of Summit colored (Green) and if they are invalid the text will be (Red).
To create your categories, log in to the administration module and select media aths from the company tab sub-tab list. Next to the paths for images, scans, and PDF's there will be a blue category button, click the category button to open the edit window. Utilize the +/- buttons to add or remove categories for each tab.

The first thing we check is our media paths. When you click on the media tab, do the paths appear in red or green? Red is indicative of an invalid path or missing permissions to the network folder. Check the path in the workstation’s file explorer to see if it is accessible. If the path does not exist, find the correct path and update the Summit administration module under the media paths tab.

The other common occurrence is a corrupt MediaPoint file. In your Summit folder there will be a MediaPoint.cfg file, delete this file and reopen MediaPoint. This should recreate the config file and load the tabs of MediaPoint. If you have tried both solutions and the problem persists please contact SummitCRS support for additional assistance.

If your media paths are green and other workstations can access MediaPoint but your tabs are not showing, this is typically a simple setting. In the MediaPoint window at the bottom of the screen you should see a cog icon, click this icon to bring up the setup window. From here we want to make sure that every box has a black checkmark. Windows can sometimes default a grey checkmark in this box. This grey checkmark is invalid and we need to click the box to remove it and then again to add the full black checkmark. Once we have verified our checkmarks we can save the setup window and your tabs should appear in MediaPoint.

Each tab is filtered by specific file types. The images tab only shows file types commonly associated with images (gif, jpg, jpeg, tiff). Scans will show image files as well as PDF files and the PDF tab will only display PDFs. The misc tab will display any file type. The files that you put there are still in the network destination folder however MediaPoint’s filtering will not allowed them to be displayed.

If you have been upgraded to SummitCRS version 8, you should already have MediaPoint installed. The application will open when the user clicks on the media tab, right clicks on the images link in the header bar, or uses the keyboard shortcut Ctrl-I. If you do not have the mediapoint.exe in your Summit folder please contact SummitCRS support to get the application installed.
