Avoid uploading 0byte size files, as these will prevent your uploads from completing.

  2. Click View files uploaded by me today. You’ll see your uploaded documents appear in the Temporary Files tab. You can work on the documents here before registering them to your project.
  3. To register documents, select the ones you want by clicking on the checkboxes to the left of each filename. Then click the Move to Register button.

Editing document details in the Move to Register page
  1. To apply the same data to multiple documents, click the View Copy-To Panel button. The Copy-To panel lets you enter your document data in a single view, and apply it to all the documents in your list, or just the ones you select.

    To apply the data to all documents, fill in the relevant data, then click the Copy to All button.

    To apply the data to just some of the documents, fill in the relevant data. Then select the documents you want to affect using the checkboxes to the left of their document numbers, and click the Copy to Selected button.

You can apply the same data to a group of documents, then edit individual fields for specific documents as you need to.

  1. Once you’ve added the relevant data for the documents you want to register, click the Submit button at the page’s top-right to move them into the project’s Document Register.

You’ll see a confirmation message when the process is complete.
