Allow UploadWizard to use other templates for import (Book, Artwork, etc.)

  • Problem: Now, when importing a book or an artwork, you need to complete a standard Information template, THEN go to the imported file and change it to the template you really need
  • Proposed solution: have a choice to import with a menu on Description tab : use specific templates (Book, Artwork, Art Photo, maybe others, I do not know)
  • Who would benefit: all people who import artworks or books manually (not power importers)
  • More comments: It would be to allow another description template than basic "Information"...
when uploading book scans, using Book would be appreciated... -> now, you have to import it with Information, THEN convert the template to Book, and then to complete the template with other data...
same with Artwork, and other similar templates...
it would be great also, using Book, Artwork or Art Photo, to be allowed to import simply refering to a wikidata item for description, describing the artwork or book edition... -> only would need to add Source - all data would be there...


Would have supported if I had known voting ended at 18 UTC. ~~~~
