    • Favourite image uploads the image to Wikimedia Commons, creates a local data item for the image and links it to the user's selected collection.
    • Add image uploads the image to Wikimedia Commons, creates a local data item for the image and lets modify the image metadata.
    • Exclude image from the images section of a topic creates a local data item for the image and lets modify the metadata.
    • Uploading your own image. Creates a data item and uploads to a selected service.
  • Event timeline
    • Option to associate or create an event to the current topic. Depending on event type, the value of the event is either just a date and location or a separate item with all properties.
  • Newspaper articles
  • Bibliographic data
    • Publications may be discovered in connected repositories by searches via their APIs. Users can validate relevant hits, which will be added to Wikidata for linking to the topic. If the amount of links exceeds what is suitable for Wikidata, they could be stored in Wikidocumentaries instead/additionally. Working with another bibliographic database would be a better option.
    • Users may add publications manually by adding an ISBN, URI, DOI etc. The functionality will use Citoid for Wikidata. Save publication to Wikidata, link to topic in Wikidocumentaries.
    • Reference to a specific book chapter, date, page, item in a database or page in a website are saved with the local reference.
  • Geolocating tool will allow to create a new location if it does not exist
  • Annotation tool will allow to create a new person if it does not exist.

Creating topics in the Wikibase interface

It is always possible to switch to Wikibase view and add and edit items. Navigation for that is needed.

Mass creating topics

It will be possible to configure external tools to upload to Wikidocumentaries
