- You can select the parent folder, right click, and select “Upload” from the menu. For example, if you perform the upload on the Corrected_Data folder, all of the blue files in that folder will be uploaded. If you perform the upload at the repetition level (on the Rep-# folder), all of the blue files in the repetition will be uploaded (i.e., blue files in all four data folders and the documentation folder). If you perform the upload at the project level, all of the blue files in the project will be uploaded.
If you have imported a folder that contains files. You must perform the upload at the parent folder. You cannot import files that belong to a folder that does not yet exist in the Project Warehouse. If you try to upload one of the files that belong to the parent folder, you will find that the upload option does not exist.
While you are uploading files, you can click the “Details” button to the right of the progress bar in the right panel to get the details of your upload. Click the “Details button again if you want to hide the details panel.
Canceling an Upload
You can cancel an upload using the “X” to the right of the progress bar in the right panel. If you cancel a multi-file upload, the upload of the current file and all files after the current file will be canceled. If you have confirmation popups turned on (Tools > Preferences menu), you will see a dialog box that shows you which files were successfully uploaded, and which were canceled.
Uploaded files will turn black. Indicating that they exist both locally and in the Project Warehouse.
