Gradrecs: Mass upload of documents

How to setup a mass upload of documents to gradrecs

We have the ability to do mass uploads into Gradrecs nightly. We would recommend PDFs but there are no limitations on file types. 

1. You will need to provide us with the netids of the people that will be uploading the files. 
2. You will need to view the Gradrecs Doc Types to see if there is an already existing file type for your file. If there is, we need to know what file type it is. If there is not, we need to know what the new file type is.

Once we have this information:

3. We will create the AD group and setup a file share for your files to be placed.

Once that is created, you can upload the files as you wish. Our script will pick up the files nightly. Your file MUST begin with the students UIN or the upload will fail. What comes after the UIN is irrelevant for us. These files will be uploaded to the "documents" section of Gradrecs with the file type that you specified in step #2 above.

Please send an inquiry to if you would like to setup this functionality.
