File Upload to Contract Generation

Uploading Files

This new uploader lets you add files alongside documents created using the Document Builder. This means the files are added into Packages themselves, via the Package Builder. This is done by:

  1. Opening the Contract Generation tool. This is a National level tool, found in the Human Resources Suite.
  2. Going to the Packages tab.
  3. Selecting the Package you would like to add the files to (or a new Package).
  4. Then, either dragging and dropping, or browsing for the files you would like to add.

Note: A package must have a document in the Included Documents section before the package can be used.

Drag and drop

Files can be dragged from your computer's file explorer, right into the upload box in the Package Builder.

Browse files

You can also simply click on the upload box, which will open a file selector window. From there, you can browse to and open the files you would like to upload.

Viewing Files

Once the files are uploaded, there are a number of places where it becomes accessible.

Administrator's view

Upon uploading the file, the upload box will update with the list of files that were added. You will be able to preview or download the file from there.

Administrators and Hiring Managers will also be able to preview and download the uploaded files from the Review Contract stage of a contract.

Candidate's view

Similarly, once candidates get access to the candidate portal and progress to their Review Contract stage, they will also be shown the uploaded file. Like the documents, the candidate must also view the uploaded files to be able to progress to the Sign Contract stage.
