Uploading Productions with Load files to GoldFynch
GoldFynch gives you the ability to upload productions with load files, and it will soon have a self-sufficient workflow to apply load files to your case on import. Currently, when you upload a production with a load file, you can request a production import. The import will be run within 24-48 hours by the GoldFynch team.
Upload a production with a load file to GoldFynch
Step 1. Zip the production on your computer if it is not already zipped.
Note: There is no additional charge for the service unless the data is malformed. In the case of malformed data, you will be notified and your approval will be required to proceed with the import (view GoldFynch's preferred formatting guidelines).
Step 2. Navigate to the Files view
Step 3. Drag and drop the zipped production onto the
Files view. Alternatively, click on the
Upload files button and then select the zipped production from your computer.
Step 4. Click on the
Begin Upload button in the upload files screen overlay
Step 5. When the upload completes, navigate to the 'Files' view screen and click on the Archive symbol against the uploaded production
Step 6. Click on the
Begin Import button to submit the production import request. The GoldFynch team will then run the import process and contact you once it is complete.
Some important points to be taken note of while uploading productions
If the production is too big to zip, get in touch with the GoldFynch team, who will set up an FTP server for you. Learn how to upload files using an FTP server here.
To get the best results, please upload the entire production, including any image and text folders. GoldFynch's import process may use these files if the native version of a particular document is not available.
Make sure that the database files(.csv, .dat, .opt) are included, in the zip file, either in the ROOT directory or inside a DATA directory.
Ensure that the network connection does not go down and that the computer that is uploading the file is not turned off.
Take a look at the guidelines for importing productions for more information related to uploading productions.
