Bulk Upload Confidential Files with a Zip File

We’ve enhanced the uploader to accept a Zip file that contains multiple files prefixed with each school’s URN (Unique Reference Number). Broadcast will match each individual file against a school using that URN.

You can still send a confidential single file or a zip file to an individual school.

Upload New Files  

Pssst… Coming soon, we will also support matching by DFE number.

Sharing files to a role makes them available to any Perspective school user who has been assigned that role, both now & in the future.

Match-Made for Time Savers

You’ll be given a chance to review all the files that have been matched to a school or setting in your LA and see precisely where they’ll be going. This allows you to verify the matches and re-assign any files if necessary.

Zip Confirmation  

Broadcast will let you filter on any files that are unmatched, as well as provide warnings where a matched file does not have a role assigned to a user in that school.

Promptly Inform your Schools

Broadcast automatically sends users an email notification as soon as their files become available.


Pssst… Broadcast even tells you when the school doesn’t have anyone assigned to that role, so you can immediately notify the Head Teacher to correct this!

See Files by Role

Your management dashboards have always let you see files that have been shared with a specific person in a school. As part of this release, you will also see a list of all the files shared by role.
