Upload a Sample Through an Excel File:

Step 1: Download the sample form from the Instructions page.

Step 2: Place the images and the excel file in a common directory. The exact file structure doesn't matter, as long as it stays consistent throughout the entire upload process.

Step 3: For each defect, enter a sample id, the defect name, and hyperlink to the image path in the image folder. Type out the first few letters of a defect name, and then click the down arrow to see available options. If you skip a line in the entry form, the server will ignore everything after the skipped line.

Step 4: Combine the image file and the excel file into a zip archive.

Step 5: Drag the zip file to the input field.

Step 6: If all steps are performed correctly, the sample will be uploaded.
