Uploading Instructions for Rapid

There are 6 options to upload data:

  • Upload from computer
  • Upload from CSV
  • Upload from a previous project
  • Upload from AWS S3
  • Upload from Google Cloud Storage
  • Upload from Microsoft Azure

Option 1: Upload from Computer

Select files from your computer to upload. For faster uploading, consider the other options that allow for async uploading. Please upload no more than 1000 files at one time.

Option 2: Upload from CSV

To upload from a local CSV file, you need to include either a column named "attachment_url" or a column named "text". "attachment_url" columns should be the data's publicly accessible remote urls.

"attachment_url"s will be used to fetch the data from that url for a website or file. For websites, the url will be displayed as a link for taskers to open.

The values in the "text" column can be used for raw text or markdown for categorization and textcollection projects. As a result, we recommend also adding some step-by-step instructions as part of the markdown.

Another feature is that we support iframes as input in the "text" column. You can add an iframe to a native app that taskers use to interact with. You can additionally provide an optional "metadata" column to store extra data in JSON. If there are more than 200 assets in the upload, we will upload in the background.
