Logging and communicating file downloads. Part Deux

This post is an attempted implementation of a need I've posted on previously, specifically the third point.

This approach brings in two more modules:

Squeeze:

This module also support "squeezing" only files on webpage. I.e. user can open page, but to download any file from this page - he is asked to fill a form. To accomplish this you need to use Filefield CCK field to store files and Filefield Stats module - http://drupal.org/project/filefield_stats

Fieldfield Stats - "is a small module which provides a new formatter that outputs a special link for tracking downloads. Each download tracks the File ID, User ID, Node ID, Host IP & Referrer URI and a timestamp."

h/t: This support request
Alternative to keep an eye on.

Warning! Both of these modules are in development and appear to be D7 dead-ends. That said, the show must go onnnn.

1) Download, install, enable the two modules. Run update.php

2) Create a Webform Node to collect desired information

3) Switch the display style to: Generic files + Stats URL [+ Download Count]
- Data File content type (/admin/content/node-type/data-file/display)
- Modify the view used for Data Files within the Data Set Node Template Panel

4) Navigate to /admin/settings/squeeze
- Set Default Squeeze Form - to webform node from 2)
- Check "Default for 'Show Page'?"
- Enable for Data File and Data Setcontent type

5) Evaluate

While this works as expected, I noticed that Squeeze fires only once per user, regardless of how many nodes they download from. This is good from a usability perspective but doesn't work so well if I want to notify Data Originators when their files are downloaded. I may be able to work around this with some combination of Rules, Download Count, Webform Rules and Webform.

6) Extend further
Initial tests show that Download Count can be used to trigger rules when Public files are downloaded. Next is to use that rule to send an email to the data originator with information from the completed webform.
