You can upload assets by clicking the Upload button on the top of your Jobs Panel, or by clicking Upload Assets in your options menu located to the right of your Job folder or subfolder.


When the upload box appears, click my computer and Add Files to add the source files. When you are done adding the source files, click Next.

If you wish to upload derivatives, select My Computer, then Add FilesKeep in mind that all derivatives must have the same file name as their corresponding source files in order for them to upload successfully. 


If you would like to enter metadata upon upload, you can select from a pre-made custom template specific to your job. 


To notify users that an upload is complete, be sure to check the box underneath the Notifications tab. This will notify every user who is assigned to this job. If you only want specific users to receive an email, you may enter their email address in the box within the Notifications tab. Once that is all complete, click Start to begin your upload.

A window with a progress bar will appear showing the how far along your upload is.
