NLIS database tips for February

How to check if an upload has been successful

The National Livestock Identification System (NLIS) will automatically send an email to advise you if an upload has been successful. If you do not receive an email, it could mean there are problems with the email server, your email address in the database may be incorrect or the email has been sent to your Junk folder.

If you don’t receive an email, information about uploads can also be retrieved directly from the database in two ways:
1. From the home page, select ‘View my transaction history’

A list of all transactions will appear by date order, with upload IDs.

Check the far right column ‘Upload Status’ to see if the upload was complete.

2. To retrieve the actual email, from the home page, select ‘View my notifications’

All emails/notifications sent to your account will be listed:

To open the email, simply click anywhere on the line that it is listed on.
