Using CloudBerry on Windows to Transfer Files to Nextpoint File Room

Please note: Nextpoint has released File Room, a secure, easy drag and drop feature that will upload large sets of data. This change will make it easier for non-technical users to upload data to their Nextpoint database and remove the need for Cloudberry for uploading.

4. Click "OK".

5. In the main menu choose "File > Amazon S3".

6. In the Account Registration window, select "Amazon S3" tab, and click "Add".

7. Fill in the "Add new Amazon S3 account" form. All of these credentials can be found by going to SETTINGS > Import tab in Nextpoint. They will be displayed in the File Room section.

  • Click Apply.
  • Click "OK".

11. LEFT SIDE: Click the "My Computer" tab in the main interface.

12. RIGHT SIDE: If it’s not already selected, choose the account you created in step 7 from the "Source" drop down.

13. Change the value of the box that says "root" directly beneath the "Source" drop down to match the File Room path value found on your Import settings page in the Nextpoint application, and click Return.

  • If desired, you can now make this new Account a favorite, by clicking the blank star icon in the root folder window. This will save you from having to enter the folder path during future visits.

14. You are now connected to your File Room and can begin transferring files.


Importing Your Documents into Nextpoint from Cloudberry

Once these files have been transferred in Cloudberry, they can be imported into Nextpoint by following the instructions below.

1. Select Import Files. (This will be in slightly different locations in Prep and Review):

Prep: DOCUMENTS > "Import Files"

Review: DATA > Import > "Import Files"

2. Click "Add File From File Room". For more information on using your File Room, click here.

3. Select the folder you would like to import, and click "Add selected file(s) to list". All of the files within the selected folder will be imported.

4. After the files appear on the right side, click "Finalize Selection"

5. When back to the main import screen, select "Import Files".
