- Downloads Folder

Each console application can be configured to download items based on your preferences. Filters can be configured by side of ball, as well as by team. Settings are specific to the client machines - so you’ll need to set each client individually.

How to Filter Teams
You can filter which teams assets download to your machine. This can help you to earmark content for direct ingest or prioritize a machine available for an important file.
After enabling the Filter Teams checkbox click on Pick Teams.
The pick teams window will open. This window allows you to include or exclude assets from one or more teams.
- Include: Only the selected team(s) owned assets will download to the machine.
- Exclude: None of the selected teams owned assets will download to the machine.
Uploading for Game Exchange
Game exchange files are uploaded through the Game Exchange Upload folder on your desktop. This folder supports the upload of any type of files but is designated for game assets. Files that download include an Interop compliant .xchange file requires users to manually fix data.
To start the upload process, add files to the Exchange Hot Folder.
- Note: A .xchange file must accompany a .mp4 file in order for play marks to be included.
The application will scan the files for game data. The upload will automatically begin if valid data is found. This process is indicated by a green up arrow on the system tray icon. Once the files are finished uploading they’ll move to a Completed folder located in the Game Exchange Upload folder.
Fixing Game Data
If the app is unable to identify valid game data it will move the files to a Holding folder. This is indicated by the system tray icon flashing orange.
You can update your files by right-clicking on the tray app icon and choosing Fix Data
A window will open which displays all files that require updating.
- Select File to Update: Choose the file(s) that require updating. Multiple files, from the same game, can be selected at one time.
- Date: Set the game date for the selected file(s).
- Home: Home team for the selected file(s).
- Visitor: Visiting team for the selected file(s).
- Shooter: Team who’s version of the game is being uploaded.
- ODK: Side of ball for the selected file. This option is disabled when multi-selecting.
- Update: Once all required fields are set this option will be enabled. Clicking it will update the meta-data for the game and move it out of the Holding folder and back to the queue.
- Click here to close the window once all files have been updated.
An active download process is indicated by a green down arrow in the tray application icon. The number of downloads queued is denoted through a tooltip when hovering over the tray application icon.
Detailed upload status can be monitored through the Job Status menu on the Vault Exchange site. You can access the site by right-clicking on the tray app and selecting Vault.
