Upload Files and Designs to a Dataset

Uploading design files to your site can be useful to compare against your survey files. When uploading files, supported formats will be automatically converted to a Design. Non-Design formats are stored in the Files within the OUTPUTS tab.

To upload a file, select the DESIGNS tab and click IMPORT A DESIGN. Drag and drop or navigate to the file you want to upload.
