As an alternative to the file upload function of your Web browser, there are two BSCW upload helpers that you may use to upload documents to your workspaces: the drag & drop uploader and the document uploader. The use of these uploaders is especially useful for the upload of large documents or a great number of documents. Both upload helpers offer the following functionality:
o upload of several files in one operation,
o drag & drop of files into the upload window,
o upload of folders as a compressed archive or as single files,
The document uploader allows for the specification of document type and description before upload. The drag & drop uploader requires prior activation in your user preferences.
Note: The BSCW Desktop client, an upload helper of former BSCW versions, cannot be invoked from the normal user interface any longer. If you need to decrypt files that were encrypted using the BSCW Desktop client, ask your BSCW administrator – the software is still available.
