Temporary Info!

For Data Only jobs we don't need to upload a file. Right now (January 2023) we may still see the Upload file tab shown briefly… if you do, please wait a few seconds. Otherwise click the Finish button without setting or changing any values.

The newly created Data Only job is added to MasterPlan Jobs and BookSite.

Check the file on BookSite
