Processed a bulk upload that was a replacement for a previous bulk upload. It appears that the same problem that happened last time, happened again this time - there are 4 individuals in the upload spreadsheet and 3 images for each individual (left side, right side and hind view). The import log record looks correct (import ID: 5bef2851), although the column called “w/Indiv” is confusing to me.
But I now have 7 copies of each individual from that spreadsheet:
7 individuals called Milcah - 6 of these have 1 encounter, 1 has 3 encounters
7 individuals called Rundu - 6 of these have 1 encounter, 1 has 3 encounters
7 individuals called Sepupa - 6 of these have 1 encounter, 1 has 3 encounters
7 individuals called Zillah - 6 of these have 1 encounter, 1 has 3 encounters
This is more copies of each than the last time this happened - I believe there were only 4 copies of each last time.
Steps I took: I logged in as admin. I uploaded the jpg images. I then selected the file and uploaded. I then noted that a formula I’d used to extract the indivID string was causing the system pains so I hit the Back button in my browser to go back to the images uploaded confirmation page, then went into my spreadsheet to paste values where there were formulas, re-saved the file with a new name, then uploaded it. This time the upload was all green but I noticed a gap in the “Socialunitname” column for a few of the records so I followed the same steps as above - clicked the browser back button, corrected my spreadsheet again (changing “UO” to “UO_Unknown Origin”), re-saved (with same file name not a new one), then re-uploaded the spreadsheet. It was all green again and this time I hit “commit these results”.
Interestingly, looking at Milcah’s individual record that has 3 encounters associated with it, the change I made to the Social Unit Name, from “UO” to “UO_Unknown Origin”, is there. But in the other records for that dog, which all only have a single encounter associated with them, some show “UO” only and others show “UO_Unknown Origin”.
What did you expect to happen?
1 individual record for each dog with 3 encounter records associated with each. Correct pack name from the file that I “commit(ted) these results” for.
What are some steps we could take to reproduce the issue?
I have forwarded the 2 different spreadsheets I used for the process described above to the email address below. I cc’d @jason because he dealt with this issue when it came up a while back when I first uploaded these same individuals and got duplicates that time. He worked on the issue and thought it was fixed but maybe that was only part of it? Or a different issue?
