Batch Replace

This functionality can be useful if you wish to improve the quality of resources within ResourceSpace. It will replace the original file and regenerate the previews of any number of resources.

You will need to name all of your replacement files with either the resource id or the contents of another metadata field and then browse to Admin > Manage Resources > Replace Resource Batch.

Select the appropriate options and then proceed to the upload screen where you can drag and drop your files. When you start the upload, this will then automatically replace the original files with those that are being uploaded.

This can be done one at a time from the Resource Edit page. See Editing Resources.

This functionality works well with the CSV Upload plugin which allows you to import a large number of resources with different metadata. Commonly a filename (mapped to a filename field) is specified in the CSV Upload in order to make this batch upload easier.
