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
Case 1 : You are not using any naming convention
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.
