Batch Document Creation

If you have a large number of text and PDF files to import into a single Library, you can use the Batch Document Creation tool.

Right-click or Ctrl-click a Library and choose Batch Document Creation.

The Batch Document Creation window will open. You can click Select Files to browse to and choose multiple document files you want to import into that library, or you can click Select Directory to browse to and choose an entire folder (including its sub-folders) of text files that you wish to import.

Once chosen, the list of files will appear under ‘Selected Files.’  You can add more text files to the list or choose to remove listed files before you click OK to import the batch.

These source Documents will automatically be named by Transana based on their file names.

You can rename Documents after they are imported by clicking on them in the Database Tree or by right-clicking them and choosing Document Properties.
