How to Setup and Complete the Repeat Upload for Multi-Site Upload (Multiple Activities Upload)
Step 1: Navigate to the "Data Management section" (second icon on the top of the screen) and click on the "Multi-Site Upload" button in the dropdown menu.
Step 2: Go through the steps on screen to complete the upload:
1.Data Category step
2.Check List step
3.File Upload step
4.Sheet Selection step
Until you get to the Column Mapping step as shown below. Once the columns are mapped correctly for the spreadsheet, tick the box beside Save Settings for reuse? at the bottom of the screen (A in the image below)and click Finish (B). This allows users to save the mapping settings and sheet format.
Step 3: Once the user clicks finish a box will appear Upload Settings Reuse where users can save these mappings and sheet selection settings to use in future uploads, the user must give the settings a name that they can then select when completing future uploads. Please ensure to give it a name and description you will recognize and be able to select for future uploads. Click Continue once the Name and Description for the saved settings has been added to finish the upload. For this example electricity was used.
The user has now saved the settings for electricity multi upload, next time the user is completing an upload into the same activity type, they can use the same layout in the upload sheet and the Repeat Upload button. This will allows the user to upload the next excel sheets almost instantly using the saved mapping settings from a previous upload. For example if a user is uploading Electricity data ever month or quarter into an activity they can save the mapping layout when completing the first upload by giving it a name and then next month click repeat upload and choose the saved settings and it will upload automatically using the mapping saved from the previous upload.
