The maximum individual file size that you can be uploaded through our progress-bar uploader is 20G.
That's quite a large file - roughly the contents of 4 DVDs or the equivalent of combining 200,000 documents into one file.
In places where you can upload several files at a time, that limit applies to individual files, not the total of all files.
If you're using our 'accessible uploader' instead, you're limited to 512MB.
When uploading very large files, remember that the upload will only go as fast as the slowest point on the network between your computer and the Kahootz servers.
That's often your own connection up to the internet, particularly if shared with other users at your location.
Kahootz tip: You can add more than one document at once!
If you add a file with the same name as an existing document, instead of creating a new document, your new file will be added as a new version of the existing file.
When uploading a .ZIP file you'll get the option to either keep that as a single file or to expand it into the workspace.
If your ZIP file contains folders and you choose to expand it, the folder structure inside your ZIP file will be created in your workspace.
If the documents in the ZIP file already exist in your workspace, they will be updated with new versions.It is possible to enable Comments, Tasks and Related Items now, or at a later date.
- Comments mean that you will be able to receive feedback from the users of the document, so you don't have to chase them to hear what they think!
- Adding tasks helps keep track of who's actually read the document; you can assign a task to a member, which they'll have to mark as done once they've read it.
- Another useful tool is connecting items which have related content - this works well as a "See also" tool.
Kahootz Tip: If you're uploading via a .zip file, the maximum amount of files the zip can contain is set to a limit of 200.
When downloading, the file size is not limited to how many documents you have but the .zip file it will generate in the background.
When you click "download all documents" it requests the server to generate this file in the background and for several reasons, we have to limit that job.
If your .zip file is smaller then it will run otherwise you'll be presented with an error message advising you have exceeded the size limit.
