Bulk Upload Excel

Migrate legacy data quickly and easily. Bulk operations is a feature in OpenSpecimen that allows users to collect and/or manipulate data outside of the application in a comma-separated value (CSV) file and subsequently load the data through the user interface. As the name suggests, this feature allows for processing of large quantities of data that might take a significantly longer time to process through typical user interactions with the application. Consider a case of legacy data migration where data is extracted from the legacy system, mapped to values in OpenSpecimen and (via bulk operations) loaded without the intervention of system programmers or database specialists. Bulk operations can also be used in routine data entry or corrections. For example, bulk operation templates can be used by sites that batch deliver bio-specimens to a repository, thus, allowing the technician on the receiving end to be able to bulk load all bio-specimens collected that day.
