Using the Bulk Upload feature, you can import data which has been entered into a preformatted spreadsheet and generate multiple reports at once. Only one type of report (Plant, Animal, or Vernal Pool) can be imported at a time. The Bulk Upload feature is one of the more complex functions of the system and therefore several help guides are available below.
