What operating system were you using? (eg. MacOS 10.15.3) Windows 10
What web browser were you using? (eg. Chrome 79) Chome
What is your role on the site? (admin, researcher, etc) Unsure.
What happened? When I uploaded 1000 photos via the bulk import the confirmation screen listed 1045 photos being uploaded, with the additional files having names I don’t recognize (e.g. DSC_4910.JPG). Additionally, the files are shaded in yellow instead of green which I believe based on the bulk upload training video suggests an issue occurred, but I don’t know how to tell what the issue is.
What did you expect to happen? 1000 files to be uploaded and shaded in green.
What are some steps we could take to reproduce the issue? Unsure.
If this is a bulk import report, send the spreadsheet to firstname.lastname@example.org with the email subject line matching your bug report — I didn’t get as far as uploading the spreasheet yet and clicked ‘go back and try again’
what it seems like to me is that perhaps files from a past bulk import attempt are lingering in the system. I say this because when I tried again to upload the 1000 photos, this time it said 2045 photos had been uploaded.
Thanks for your patience! When you bulk import your photos, they’re temporarily stored in a bucket within your account until they’re done processing. If you’ve started and then restarted this step, that would account for the number doubling.
Your screencapture is actually ok! I revisited the video and noticed that the files appear green upon upload, but then change to yellow upon review:
Oh, I should have clarified: that won’t mean that you’ll have duplicate files sent. It won’t result in multiples of the same images. Once you complete your bulk import, you’ll only see one set of images to correspond with your respective import.
I don’t think I mentioned it earlier, but your spreadsheet looks good to me as well.
