In this section you will learn the basics of how to setup Osmos Uploader.

What Are Osmos Uploaders?

Osmos Uploaders enable product teams to quickly build upload buttons and embed them into any web property for a seamless self-service data import experience for their end users. Osmos Uploaders come pre-integrated with Destination Connectors, including databases, SaaS applications, and filestores to allow for hassle free data uploads.

Any data uploaded by the end-user is saved directly into the destination system, post cleanup. The Osmos Uploader is designed with an intuitive interface for your end users to quickly clean up data. The Osmos Uploader comes in two version, standard mode or advanced mode. The Standard Mode is designed for external users and leverages column mapping and AutoClean. Our Advanced Mode is designed for internal teams and users can use for more in-depth transformations with SmartFill, QuickFixes and Formulas.

Note: The Osmos Uploader defaults to a simplified version. To turn on Advanced Mode simply update the snippet.

Setting Up an Osmos Uploader

To setup an Osmos Uploader, you need to specify the destination system where the uploaded data will be saved. We support all the Destination Connectors specified in the "Destination Systems" section.

Once destination is defined and your Osmos Uploader is saved, you will be presented with a simple Javascript that can be embedded into any web property. As a part of the Osmos Uploader setup, you may also choose to send parameterized values (such as user ID, upload ID etc.) as well as validate the end-user entered data in real-time.

End-User Experience

When your end-user goes to upload data, they will be presented with an intuitive interface to quickly map, clean, and transform the data to fit your destination system schema. When an end-user uploads data through the uploader, the data will show up in your destination system.
