Working with crossWAN Data

If a crossWAN load or crossWAN classic user has finished the assigned task or would like to transmit the partially finished task, this can be done in two ways: the data can be sent to the Across Server via an Internet connection within Across (crossWAN load), or the data can be saved in the form of a Client Response Unit (CRU) file and transmitted on a suitable data medium (e.g. a USB stick), by e-mail or as an FTP download (crossWAN classic).

Direct Data Transmission

If the crossWAN load mode is used to send data to the Across Server within Across, the document-related data are automatically imported to the Across Server. However, crossTank and crossTerm entries have to be imported manually, e.g. in order to ensure that you can monitor the import and only desired entries are imported.

The Import crossTank/Term Packages Wizard assists you in importing crossTank and/or crossTerm entries.

To start the Import crossTank/Term Packages Wizard, select Tools > Import crossTank/crossTerm Packages Wizard.

If there are any crossTank/crossTerm data packages that were transmitted by a crossWAN load user, you will receive a notification to that effect when you log in to Across. Click Yes to run the Import crossTank/Term Packages Wizard to import the data.

Indirect Data Transmission

However, if you have been provided the data of a crossWAN classic user as CRU file, you need to import it to Across. To do so, go to the Tasks module, select the relevant task in the task list and click crossWAN classic IN below the task list. Then select the CRU file and click Open. The CRU file will then be imported.

Alternatively, you can use the Import/Export WAN Tasks Wizard to import CRU files.
