Uploading Assets

Perrie Schad -

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 (or Add Folders if using Aspera) 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 Files or Add FoldersKeep 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. 



Monitoring your Uploads 

You can check on the status of your uploads in your globaledit Job Monitor. To find it, navigate towards your job panel, click on Options, and select Job Monitor.



Select View next to the job you want to see the status of.

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



Once your assets have completed uploading, click on the gear wheel associated with the job or folder you uploaded to. On the dropdown menu, click on ’refresh’. Now all successfully uploaded assets are viewable.


Another way to refresh is to go to the path bar and click on the folder that you uploaded into.
