How to Upload Batch Files

Files must be uploaded to LE Records in PDF format. Once files are scanned into a PDF, they can then be uploaded and added to the respective employee’s profile. There are two ways up to upload files either as batch files or individual files.

You will need to select a destination folder by scrolling through the drop-down menu or you can select Batch File for Processing.

If you only have one file which is already identified and you know where to store this file, then use one of the following folder options: Personal Information, OPF, OPF/JF-62A, EPF, EPF/EPR, EPF/Awards, or EPF/Training.

When going through the deployment process and uploading files, you can scan batch files from the employee’s paper file and then import using the Batch File Processing function. This will allow Post HR Admins to upload files and then Artificial Intelligence (AI) built into LE Records will read the documents, then split the file into documents based on the document type and assign a name based on the predefined naming structure. You can use this function for multi-page documents, just make sure all the pages are included in the batch file when it is uploaded. Documents which are not known to the AI will be automatically placed in the Personal Information folder. ADG recommends HR Admins to review the files saved in the Personal Information and rename files accordingly, please keep file size to a maximum of 30 MB.

Files can either be uploaded from a drive or you can drag and drop them into the box.

The batch file selected should only be for the employee indicated. Click Upload when you are finished. Then click on the destination folder for the batch file you just uploaded. You will see the name of the batch file and you will notice a blue icon to the right of the file name. This icon indicates the AI is working to split the file into documents and assign a name based on the names which are predefined within the AI. (All of the AI naming is managed by the System Admin, not HR Admins)

Once the AI is finished, the new files will appear in the destination folder with their names already assigned.

All files which are unknown to the AI will be stored in the Personal Information folder. AI will also identify files with low “certainty” and assign a tag with the known file type, however the file will still be assigned to the Personal Information folder. HR Admins should always check the Personal Information folder after uploading batch files and manually rename and move files as needed into the correct folders.
