The Batch Process tool enables the creation of multiple instances of folders and scheduled recordings, and for multiple changes in permissions and RSS settings in Panopto via a .csv upload.

Requests for Batch Processes should only be sent via the ASK Service Now form (search for Panopto Batch Process on ASK) and must follow the format in the templates supplied below. Access to the form is restricted to Videographers.

Available Batch processes and link to templates:

Each option allows you to create or change 10 or more items in Panopto. Ensure that you delete the example rows and the column headings before submitting the .csv. A receipt will be provided once the batch has been processed.

Please be aware it is your responsibility to fill out the information accurately and that submitted .csv files will not be validated, checked or amended by ICT.

Staff members that require access to the Batch Process ASK form should liaise with their Faculty Learning Technologist.

FOLDER INHERITANCE
It is not possible to activate folder inheritance through the batch tool, so the permissions for each folder need to be explicitly applied in the csv. Leaving the account name field blank in the csv like this:

          12345,Test folder 1, ,U,V

 …will result in the folder being created without an owner.

 ASSIGNING MULTIPLE PERMISSIONS

If you want to assign multiple accounts to a folder with the same permissions, you can add multiple user or group accounts to a csv line by separating the names with a comma and surrounding the account name field with double quotes.

For example, if you want to grant the users jsmith and jbloggs viewer rights to a new folder named 'Test Folder 1' in the parent folder with ID 12345, the line in the csv would look like this:

          12345,Test folder 1,"jsmith,jbloggs",U,V

If you wanted to grant creator permissions to the groups elearning, engineering and FONS to a new folder named 'Test folder 2' in the parent folder with ID 12345, the line in the csv would look like this:

          12345,Test folder 2,"elearning,engineering,FONS",G,C

If you want to create a new folder and assign permissions to a single account you do not need the quotation marks. If you want to create a new folder and assign permissions to multiple users and groups you can create the new folder with one set of permissions then add additional permissions using the Batch permissions tool.
