New file uploader with support for tool data file sharing
We are excited to announce that our vastly improved file
uploader is now available, providing these new features:
• Support for data files! We now support common
automotive data file formats, including ATS EScope, Ford
IDS, PicoScope, Snap-on, Tech-II, Toyota Techstream, and
more. Our plan is to add support for more automotive data
file formats as we encounter them. So even if you upload one
that is currently not accepted, our system retains the file
and our staff will evaluate it to determine how to accept it
in the future. Here's an example data file uploaded by
Harvey Chan: [Cam-Crank #1 In-Cylinder], used in his
recent post to the Technical Discussion Forum: http://autop.ro/5kh
• A modernized interface that supports uploading from
mobile devices running iOS 6 and Android 4 and above.
• Drag-and-drop support for modern browsers: IE 10,
and recent versions of Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. This
feature allows you to drag and drop multiple files onto the
file uploader screen to easily initiate your upload. Of
course a traditional file picker is still available.
• Easier categorization of files, simplifying the
process, especially when assigning a vehicle, which can now
be done very easily using our Smart Vehicle Builder. Just
enter a VIN or type a Year Make Model (or even just year
followed by a model) to easily pick a vehicle. Those of you
that have tried our new search engine (currently in
beta) will find the vehicle builder interface
is the same.
• Better integration with the members-only area of the
site, so that you don't leave the site when uploading your
files. Instead, a popup window appears, letting you upload
files right there.
Try it now by going to your File Uploads,
and clicking on the button to "Upload Files." Or if you're
posting in the forums, click on the Add File tab below the
text entry form, and then click on "Upload New File."
In the future we look forward to supporting more document
file formats, as well as inline viewing of popular document
formats like RTF, Word, Excel, PDF, etc without needing to
open an external application.
If you do experience any issues uploading data files (or any
files), please contact us at [...]
and let us know what file format it is, what tool generates
the file, and any other information you can give us
(including a sample file).
