Manage Files

Upload selected files

Transferring files to Manja is very simple: select the categories to which the files or a complete folder should be added, and then select the files or folder itself on your computer or network. Multiple selection is possible - you can select and upload several files at once.

How do I import my files into Manja? This can be done easily and quickly by uploading/uploading. With this, your files will be stored in the location you have specified. And the highlight: even entire folders including content can be uploaded easily and quickly in Manja.

Tip: On our page Features & Add-ons we have compiled an informative overview of all our features. In addition, we also offer information about uploading files on the Manage and Organize assets page.

Start upload dialog

Back to top
The toolbar contains various functions: Upload Files, Open/Edit , Add to Light Box, Download, Send, Publish, Export, Print and Delete.

Toolbar with the various functions

On the left side in the result list toolbar, you can find the button “Upload”. If you click it, the upload dialog appears.

This dialog is divided into the following two to three steps.

Step 1 - Select category

Back to top

Upload Files and Folders

Select the category in which the files are to be classified here. The assignment to a category is necessary. Depending on your assigned authorization, you may only be able to classify files in selected categories. You can change this classification at any time later.


Optional: Edit categories

You can also right-click in the upload dialog to edit, reorder, sort content, move, add or delete the existing category.

Note: this option is only available to you with the appropriate authorization (see: Introduction to Users, Groups & Permissions).

Step 2 - Select further categories (optional)

Back to top

In the second step, you can specify other category classifications if so desired and available. This step is optional, but recommended if you want to catalog the data volume comprehensively. Again, you can change the classification into these categories at any point later in time.

Step 3 - Select and upload files

Back to top

In the third step, you select the files. Click on the button “Select Files”. In the following query, you select the files on your computer or from your network and click on “open” or “select”.


Drag and drop folders or files

Alternatively, you can simply drag and drop the marked files from your local file system or even entire folders into the area (“or drop here”).
When dragging and dropping local folders in Manja, these folders are automatically adopted as categories.

Note: You can select several files at the same time.


Upload process

The upload is started immediately, and you can observe its progress.

Note: You can select additional files or cancel the upload process at any time (even while files are already being uploaded).


View & actions after successful upload

After a successful upload, you can see a preview image. You can then open the respective file in detail view or delete the file.

You can edit the files’ metadata (e.g. title, description, and keywords) inside the detail view.

If an upload process is interrupted, a dialog appears asking for confirmation to really cancel the upload process.

Cancel upload

Note: If you close the upload dialog during the upload process, a message appears with a selection for the progress of the upload or the cancellation.

After the Upload

Back to top

After closing the dialog, a new search is triggered immediately. There you will find the files you have uploaded.

At any later point in time you can again find your files via search. In order to do so, search for all files (e.g. search for “*”) or simply select the respective category. Make sure that your result list is sorted so that the latest files appear first (default setting).
