Drop multiple files at a time for adding/updating multiple proofs (bulk file upload)

You can drop multiple files at a time in Aproove in order to update multiple proofs at a time. This will save you a lot of time and effort. For doing so, just use the add/Update proof button like showed in the picture below.

When using the bulk upload capability, you have multiple choices (see case 1 and 2) and optionally have Aproove to check if you need or not a revision of the file you just dropped. This will give you the insurance that Revision will be created only if required. Aproove use a pixel by pixel comparison in order to know if a proof revision is required. Say good by to fake revision of a proof, say hello to real revisions.


For using bulk file upload and version/revision management, you need to first go in the Proof and files tab. From there you have 2 choices :

Case 1 : Drop Files without any file naming convention. This means that you did not named your file specifically for versioning (not using a _Vxxx as a suffix name in your filename)

Case 2 : Drop Files using a naming convention for versions or revisions

First, Go in the proof and files tab from Main project dashboard (open project and go to proof and files).

Click here to upload and update multiple proofs in one Drop.

When open, you have to choice to activate the smart revision creation if you require it. You can also cancel the operation at any moment by clicking on the Cancel button above.

Case 1 : You are not using any naming convention

No naming convention means that you don't name your file differently for each revision or version. When files with the same name are dropped into Aproove they are automatically recognized as revisions to the previously uploaded file with the same name. Using this method of versioning within Aproove, it's important to make sure that every version of your file has the exact same name. Please note that Aproove will only create a new version of a file if it detects that there is a difference between the previous file and the newly uploaded file. If you drop the same file twice, Aproove will not increase the version number if you use the smart revision option as described above.

Case 2 : Using a _Vx file naming convention inside Aproove

This method applies to users who need to manage their file versions by using a different file name. Aproove One supports file name versioning through the use of a file suffix as well as fully customized versioning starting with our Premium level product. To use the standard versioning method in Aproove One, you will need to use a _Vx suffix on your files (note: the letter "V" must be uppercase). For example, your original starting file would be considered Revision 1. The Revision 1 file would need to be named MyFile_V1.pdf. Revision 2 file would need to be named MyFile_V2.pdf, and so on. There is no limit to the number of recognized revisions.

Please note that Aproove will only create a new version of a file if it detects that there is a difference between the previous file and the newly uploaded file if you use the smart revision option described above.
