We are trying to upload 25 test images and the related spreadsheet to use the bulk import facility to upload data for the Ningaloo whale sharks in Western Australia, but we are getting the following issues.
I browse to the image folder which is directly off my C: drive the upload window is populated with the images to upload, and the image names don’t have any special characters in them, as far as I can see.
I click the upload button and the browser says the images are uploading.
The browser then directs me to check that all the images I’ve selected are uploaded, but there are 0 images in the list. I tried this a few times on different networks, different browsers (firefox and microsoft edge and different laptops, with no success.
I then tried to continue, thinking the images might have been uploaded anyway, so I uploaded the spreadsheet, but the database comes up with the message that a filename was found in the URL but couldn’t find the file itself.
Do I need any additional user rights to be able to run the bulk import process?
I’ve emailed the spreadsheet and pdf containing the screenshots of the errors to email@example.com.
Are you familiar with using the Console Log in your browser? It’d be great if you can get a screenshot of any error messages that appear when you attempt to upload your images in the bulk import workflow.
If you’re not sure how to do this, we can do a Zoom call and I can take a screenshot while you screenshare your upload attempt.
Can you also click on the little arrow new to Object to expand what’s beneath it? And also click on Learn More? I’ve used white to mark where in the screenshot below. I’m looking to see if either one of those gives more details behind the error.
Apparently Sharkbook was preventing any users without the “admin” role from uploading bulk imports. We’ve corrected this and now anyone with the “researcher” role should be able to import their images without issue.
