3. Upload Files to Collection
Once you have created a Collection you can upload files to it. The files will then be sent to Assessors to generate assessments via a Campaign. If you have not yet created a Collection, please visit our Create Collection help page first.
Each file uploaded to a Collection will utiltize one "Upload Only" code. If you require additional "Upload Only" codes, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
All file types allowed on your 'Uploading' screen can be uploaded to a Collection.
You can upload individual files or .zip files containing multiple individual files (.zip files will automatically be unzipped during the upload process).
There are no required naming conventions for files uploaded to Collections. However, using consistent naming conventions across your uploaded files will allow you to more easily locate desired files when generating assessments for your Campaigns, especially if you plan to manually assign Assessors to files and/or manually select the files.
