Media, which is often an important component of a record, can be tedious to upload file by file. Fortunately, CollectiveAccess offers a Batch Import tool to simplify the upload of large sets of files. To use this tool, click on "Import" in the Global Navigation Bar (see below):
Before you begin importing media, you must carefully define your settings. Begin by choosing a directory to import from the top field on the screen. Click on the grey arrow to the right of each directory name to display a list of the folder's contents. If the folder includes subdirectories containing media you wish to import, be sure to check "Include all sub-directories" at the bottom of the field. This option will remain checked the next time you perform an import unless you choose to uncheck it.
