A while back, we introduced a field type in Event Wizard® that allowed your registrants to upload files/photos as a part of their registration. Although it has proven to be a very useful tool for many of our users, it still felt like it was missing a few things, especially when it came to reporting. So, we decided it was time to do something about it:
Looking under the Tools column on the report pages, you’ll notice a little pink “Files” icon. When clicked, this brings you to a page where you can view all the uploaded files from a specific registrant. The problem was that until now, it appeared active for all registrants, regardless of whether or not they had uploaded any files. Now, we’ve remedied this by only enabling for registrants who have uploaded a file, (otherwise it is greyed out).
This way you can quickly scan through to see who has uploaded something and who hasn’t, without the need to drill down on each registration. That said, if you want to view a registrant’s upload(s), you can still click the icon and drill down to the details. Cool!
Much like the new search function included in our latest additions to the My Files page, the View Uploads report got the same treatment. This new search function allows you to filter through your registrant uploads and only display the files/registrants that contain a specified criteria. Simply enter your search terms in the box and watch as your list transforms to only display files/registrants that match your terms.
Before now, it was a bit of a chore to download or delete registrant-uploaded files, since you could only do so one-by-one. The new selective download and delete tools make this task much simpler. Notice the new checkboxes to the far left of each record – as soon as one or more is selected, you will see the Download Files and Delete Files buttons show up beside the Search box.
Click the Download Files button and you’ll receive a .zip file containing all of the files that you have checked. Click the Delete Files button and, after a confirmation, you’ll remove all the files you have checked. Keep in mind that the delete action is permanent, so be careful!
It’s worth noting that this section also benefits from our latest storage increase, since the space used by your registrant uploads is shared by the files you have uploaded through the My Files page.
We hope you find these new enhancements as useful as we do. For more information on how to use the File Uploader field, check out our dedicated blog post on this. As always, if you have any other questions or concerns, feel free to contact us.
