Questions re: Additional Data Files

What Wildbook are you working in? ACW

On a Marked Individual page, there’s the ability to upload an “Additional Data File”. We’re thinking of using this for excel books that contain additional information about intensively studied and/or “managed” individuals. Before we do that, we have some questions:

  1. Once uploaded, can they be downloaded or exported? If so, how?
  2. Once uploaded, can they be updated? If so, how?
  3. Would any of the data in these files be captured in a Wildbook search? (I’m thinking not but thought I should double check)
  4. Are there limits to the # of data files that can be uploaded to a given Marked Individual page?
  5. If a file with the same name is uploaded to the same Marked Individual page, what happens?
  6. If a file with the same name is uploaded to 2 different Marked Individuals, what happens?
  7. Are there file type restrictions? i.e. only excel, word, dat, …

Thanks in advance for your help!
