Automatic upload of PDF files to Yumpu
Welcome to the Screencast “Automatic upload of PDF files via Dropbox”
As usual, we log in and start on the Yumpu homepage. From the menu in the upper right-hand corner, we select “Edit connections”.
On the following page, we click on the link “Connect with Dropbox”.
We are being redirected to Dropbox in order to give Yumpu the permission to access certain data and/or folders.
Here, we enter user name and password. Make sure to enter the login information for Dropbox and not for Yumpu. In this context, it should be noted that at no time Yumpu will have access to your Dropbox login information.
On the following page, you will be asked to grant Yumpu permission to access your Dropbox. To grant access, we click “Allow”.
We are being redirected to the Yumpu page to which we can link the desired Dropbox folder.
We click “Choose a Service”. This will display the exact path to our documents.
Under the last item “Choose a destination” we will now specify the method of saving or publishing the elements as well as the location in which they should be saved or published. In our case, we link the Dropbox folder to the area “Brochures” in our collection “2014”. We click “Create” to confirm and save the settings.
Our link has been saved.
Now, the Dropbox folder will be scanned every 5 minutes. If the folder contains new documents, they will be synced automatically. This may take a few minutes. You can see in the table below that 4 new documents have been detected and are currently being synced.
As soon as the synchronization process is completed, the documents will appear in the target location. Soon after, you will receive a confirmation email.
We check our collection and see that the area “Brochures” now contains five magazines. This is how easy and fast you can manage your documents with Yumpu and Dropbox.
