Using cloud based file storage like DropBox with Express Load

You can load files into MasterFile from any cloud based file service as long as it creates a mapped drive on your computer like DropBox.

Right click in the address bar and choose Copy address.

In MasterFile,

  1. Click on Express Load
  2. Choose Batch Load or the function you need
  3. Click on Select current directory

Now click in File Name, paste the path you copied earlier, click save and ...

Windows switches to the DropBox folder, displaying the files there. This is a fast way to navigate to a folder.

Finishing the Express Load process, the three files are loaded. Note the type (as well as other metadata apart from the filename/summary) is set to Unknown as it was not provided.
