Please note that the maximum file size uploaded from any source is 160 MB. If you require bigger file upload capacity, please get in touch.

You can also add links to online documents from your Google or Microsoft Drive (spreadsheets, documents, and slides) or links to YouTube videos. Remember however to check authentication settings. You can double check that Items are viewable by using the 'eye' icon in the Items area.

How can I monitor my Item uploads?

As Items are being processed into the system you are presented with a real-time progress dashboard. Once the Item has been processed you will be able to see that it is ready and can preview how it will look in the system. Simple Quality Assurance functionality allows you to check all Items before running a session.
