1 Quality Education for a Healthier Scotland How to upload documents to SOAR for Appraisees (Primary and Secondary Care)

2 Overview There are two ways to upload documents to SOAR: 1.Directly to Appraisal Form 3 (Domains); or 2.To My Documents, then link to Form 3 Uploading to Form 3 directly is quicker Uploading to My Documents allows Appraisee to view all files uploaded

3 Documents / Limitations (1/2) There is a 12MB per upload limitation If uploading multiple files (My Documents), check the files do not tally up to more than 12MB – if so, upload the files individually When uploading, you MUST give each document a short description in the blank box provided – When you scan documents, unless you change the file name, the default names will be scan001.jpg or scan002.tiff etc – This does not tell the appraiser (or you) what the file is about – hence the need for a short description

4 Documents / Limitations (2/2) There is a white list of accepted file types for SOAR, but this list is extensive (includes all Microsoft Office files and most file formats) and if required, could be added to – But remember, if the file you are trying to upload is not accepted on SOAR, chances are, your appraiser might not be able to open it even if we allowed the upload. Consider saving the file in a different format (e.g. -.pdf,.doc,.rtf)

5 Upload directly to Form 3 When uploading to Form 3, you need to consider which Domain the document(s) go to Any documents uploaded to Form 3 will also be stored in My Documents Whilst GP and Secondary Care forms are different in content, the uploading function is the same

7 For Secondary Care, click on Form 3 Decide which Domain the document(s) need to be uploaded to (Expand) the Domain (Expand) the heading Add a new Document from your PC This then allows you to select documents from your computer and upload directly to Form 3 Domains

8 To upload a document: Click Choose File or Browse Select the file from your computer Give it a short description Click Upload When uploaded, the document will appear on the list If you are using SOAR for the first time and have a lot of certificates to scan and upload, check with your appraiser and, if agreed, you can simply bring them on the day of your appraisal instead, but note this in the Comments box

9 Upload to My Documents My Documents allow users to upload documents on the go, and then decide which Domain on Form 3 it should link to at a later stage Upload up to 5 documents at a time Files uploaded to My Documents need to be linked to Form 3 Domains, otherwise they will not be included for sharing with your appraiser when you submit your forms
