Candidates | Mass Import does not work!

Fresh OpenCats installation on Linux. Candidates tab, Mass Import option does not work.

Can someone walk me through the steps to repair?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Charles,

I'm new here, but I've just done a clean install of OpenCATS on Linux and I got my bulk import to work, so perhaps I can help?

You don't select a bunch of files to import from the mass upload screen, you have to move the files to a specific location for upload.

Go to your install directory, where your running OpenCATS lives. Under Ubuntu mine is at /var/www/cats/ (I followed the install guide and this is a symlink to the actual directory at opencats0.91a)

You'll find a directory called /upload/massimport/ (I may have this slightly wrong - I'm not at my box, but the directory is obvious once you look into your install directory.)

Move the CV's there and you can then go to candidates - add - mass import. The number of resumes found will be listed and you'll have several options on dealing with them.

I did change the permissions on the directory so that any user can copy files there, as on my install at least, you had to be root to do so.

Please note that there is no resume parsing, but the added resumes are searchable.

I hope this helps,

Soops

Hi All,

not sure anyone can advise me. I am running OpenCats 0.9.4 and have a number of CVs in various formats, .pdf, .doc, .docx, etc, that I would like to import. I log in as an Admin, so I would have thought this would be enough permissions, but when I copy CVs to the /upload/massimport folder, the CVs are not imported in. Have tried it with just .doc files, and then .pdf, but none of them work.

Any idea what I am doing wrong?

Hope someone can help.

Regards,


Mak.

Hi,

sorry for this,

it seems to be an intermittent issue and from what I've seen only appears if you're installing under Windows?

Can you review the resolution details below in the similar reported issues and confirm if the actions resolves your problem?
https://github.com/opencats/OpenCATS/issues/365
https://github.com/opencats/OpenCATS/issues/247
https://github.com/opencats/OpenCATS/issues/65

If these all fail, can you open it as a new issue in githb and we can work through it.

Hi RussH,

tried this links you posted, but they do not help solve the issue.

I even installed OpenCATS on Xamp (Windows 7 machine), to see if I could get it to work, but I still get the same issues.

The pdf files I place in the \Upload\Import are seen by OpenCATS, and it seems to go through the process of uploading them, but then it gives the error message "None of the files you uploaded were able to be imported!"

Anything else I can try?

Thanks for your help.

Regards,

Mak.
