The Uploads screen will display your previously uploaded super contribution files as well as the live processing and status of any current super contribution data (file) being uploaded for your organisation.
Depending on your payroll software provider, you may not see your files listed on this page (or elsewhere!). You can still access any data that's been successfully submitted to ClickSuper via the Payments or Contributions screen.
The uploads table displays all files that have previously been uploaded to ClickSuper and the status of the uploaded file.
Clicking on the Upload name of a file with a Status of Success, which is hyperlinked, will take to you the Contributions page with automatic filtering for data corresponding to that specific file.

File Uploads and Formats
The first process is to upload your payroll file to reconcile all your superannuation/deduction data and ready for payments to be scheduled.
Clicksuper accepts both XML and SAFF(Superannuation Alternative File Format) CSV file uploads for contributions.

You can delete some files that appear in the uploads page, including all files with a status of Failed and some files with a status of Success if payments have not been processed for the successful file. If payments have already been processed, the Delete option will not appear on the action menu at the bottom of the page.
Deleting a file with a status of Success will also delete any unprocessed payment data that was created for that file (eg any payments with a staus of Unscheduled and/or Scheduled).

Waiting User Response
When an upload file has a status of 'Waiting User Response', you need to "Accept" the file in order for payments to generate to the system. You cannot schedule a payment without first accepting the file.
