UploadWizard should allow filling out metadata while waiting for slow uploads
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

When uploading very large files such as videos, which may be hundreds of megabytes or larger, it may take tens of minutes or several hours to upload... especially if you have a large batch of multiple files.

Currently you have to select all your files in the wizard, then *wait for a few hours*, then come back to your browser window and fill out the metadata to publish the file.

It would be much more convenient, and probably less error-prone for the human operator, if the actual upload step could continue on in the background while the human fills out metadata in the later stages of the wizard.
