The action that allows you to Bulk Download Resources is the latest area of your platform to receive an upgraded UI and experience. This release, currently in Beta, is the first in a series of releases surrounding Resources Download. Eventually you will be able Bulk Download with Transformations.
This article provides an overview of the upgraded experience of the new Bulk Download. Please note that if you require permission to Download Resources, your experience will be slightly different to what is included below.
How to Bulk Download
The Bulk Download action is accessible through the Bulk Actions bar that appears at the bottom of your screen once you select a Resource (as it is currently). Users can select Resources they want to download, before selecting the Bulk Download action from the footer bar.
This is demonstrated below:
Downloading your Resources
If you have permission to Download all the selected Resources, you'll be taken to the Bulk Download overlay (pictured below):
To Download your Resources, click Download Selected at the bottom right of the page (the yellow button above). Once you click Download Selected, all selected Resources will be zipped together and automatically downloaded as a Zip file to your device, depending on your location on the platform.
Customise your Zip file name
If you wish to customise the name of your download, ie the name of the zip file that will be automatically downloaded to your Desktop, you can add a custom name (up to 40 characters in length).
This option is located at the top of your Resources display on the Bulk Download overlay (see below).
If nothing is entered here, then the default name for your Zip file will be your User Name and the time you clicked Download, as indicated in the placeholder text above.
After Clicking Download
Once you've clicked Download, the overlay will close and take you to the screen where you selected your Resources for Download. Whilst this is happening, your Zip file is being created. Once this process is completed, the file with automatically be Downloaded to your device.
Tracking your Download
You can also track the progress of your Download, or access past downloads via the Jobs popup. This is located at the top right of your screen, accessible by clicking the loading icon. If there is an active Job (so something is processing), then there will be also be a count next to the icon.
When you open the popup, you can view All, In Progress or Completed Jobs.
In the Completed and All tabs, you can download previous Jobs that have been completed. These are stored for 7 days before the Download Job will be removed from the list.
The In Progress tab will display Jobs that are currently running, providing an indication of its progress.
