Files

Import files

Note: When files are imported to MindBridge through the Data page, they are automatically added to the file manager.

To start importing files directly into the file manager, you can either:

  • Select Import to browse your computer for a file, or
  • Drag and drop a file from your computer into the main area of the file manager, or into a folder.

The file appears in the file manager and MindBridge proceeds to validate the data.

Note: While MindBridge validates the file's data, you can rename, export, or delete the file, but all other actions will be disabled until the data validation has completed.

Move items into folders

Use the grab handle icon in line with the desired file or folder to physically move the item into a folder.

Rename files

  1. Open the Actions menu in line with the file or folder you want to rename.
  2. Select Rename.

Export files

Export a single file

  1. Open the Actions menu in line with the file you want to export.

    When more than 1 box is selected, the bulk actions bar appears.
  2. Open the Actions menu in the bar.

Delete files

Note: Everyone in the engagement can access files added to the file locker, but only Admins, Organization Creators, and the user who imported the files can delete files from the file manager.

Search 

There are several ways to find items in the file manager.

  2. Press Enter/Return on your keyboard, or select the magnifying glass icon.
    Files and folders that match your search criteria appear below.

Filters 

Use the Imported by or Status filters to find files that match your query.

Sort a column

Sort columns in ascending or descending order by selecting the column header. The darker triangle indicates the sort order.


Add files to an analysis from the file manager

  1. On the Data page, go to the analysis you want to run and select Browse.
  2. Select Browse file manager from the menu.
    A pop-up window appears.
  3. Select the file you wish to use from the list.
  4. When you are satisfied, Import the file into your analysis.


Additional actions

If the file you want to import contains multiple sheets of data, the file manager allows you to split the required sheets out from the original file, then merge the sheets into a new file with all of the required data appearing on the new file's first sheet.
