What do I need to do as a data supplier?
As a data supplier, you will be asked to provide data in to the organisation that owns the gather360 workspace that you have been invited to.
Workspace owners will use gather360 to request data from your organisation in a quick, efficient way. When a request for data is created, the gather360 system will email you to inform you that data is required, and will provide all the information you need to provide that data via the gather360 workspace, and minimises time-consuming back and forth correspondence via email.
I have received a request for data, what does this mean?
When a supplier is nominated to upload data, you will receive an email from gather360 informing you that a new request for data from your client. This request includes a due date is when the data is required by.
When a data request is received, you can log in to gather360 workspace to upload data in response to this request. There are two options to upload data:
A manual file upload (CSV, json, or Excel file)
An automated upload (API or Script Upload)
You can find more details on how to upload data here.
