Replacing multiple documents

Replacing existing documents with new or updated documents is simple with our easy to use Document Replace Tool. Our tool can handle replacing up to 100 documents at a time.

Documents are identified by Filename. In order for a document to be replaced successfully, the new document will need to have the exact file name as the new.

Navigate to DocPress > Document Hub and select the Replace button.

This will open the Replace Documents tool where you can begin the process.

You can either drag and drop the new document/s in the Replace window or browse and select them by choosing Select Documents. This should not be a zipped file, rather select multiple documents from your desktop.

Once the documents have been ‘dropped’ or selected they will be added into the Upload & Replace grid.

Documents that have matched on file name will be identified as replaceable with the replace icon. If any unique filenames have been included in the batch of documents, the system will treat them as new document uploads and identified with the upload icon. You will be required to add meta data as tags against the new documents.

There are 3 default meta data types that are mandatory:

  • File Name – generated automatically
  • Document Title
  • Document Culture

If you wish to add additional meta e.g. Fund Name, ISIN or Document Type you will need to ensure that additional Document Meta has been setup in the Data Dictionary. Once setup, these will be made available to fill in your Upload grid.

Fill in or edit the meta values for all documents. If you require the same value across documents you can drag the value down the column to copy it in each field.

Once you have added or edited all your meta values, select Upload & Replace. You will them be able to monitor the status of each document replace or upload.

Once complete you can close the Replace Window and search for your new documents in your Document Hub.

Replacing single documents

Individual documents can be replaced easily using the Replace File tool. This method does not require the new document to match the file name of the existing document.

Use the search bar to find the document you want to replace.

Select the document.

This will open a panel detailing all the meta data associated with the document.

Under File Name select the button Replace File.

Search for and select the new document using the file manager window that appears.

The File Name will change to the new document. Select SAVE.

Your document has now been successfully replaced.
