There is no shared upload manager in CMS Builder. It's one of the weaknesses that I'm hoping is on their radar for future releases... along with something like Advanced Custom Fields for Wordpress or Matrix Fields for Craft (hint!)

A separate section editor for uploading files could work, but it will have some limitations and inconveniences, and it may not work depending on your specific use case. 

Hi mizrahi,

Thanks for shedding light on this.

I created a separate section editor and then dumped that into a dropdown list ... but then I had to comb through scores of documents so I quickly dropped the idea. I've settled for duplicating.

mizrahi: I'm made a note of your feature request.

terryally: For future, check out adding a "Related Records" field with an Add button.  It's a bit more complicated but lets you associate different types of records together.  Say you had 2 sections: companies and locations, you could create another section called companiesToLocations which had fields: num, companyNum, locationNum where those last two fields are pulldowns.  Then in companies you add a related records field that lists companiesToLocations where company num is equal to the current company num.

Let me know next time you want to try that and I can give more of an example.

I second Mizrahi, suggestion:

- File manager althought i hooked one up,

- Matrix field where you are free to add unlimited fields to create tabular data under or accordions under one record
