As a PACSonWEB Source User / Source Admin

Once uploaded successfully, the studies can be found via the Worklist or the Explore Page. All uploaded studies will have the label 'Uploaded'.
Filtering the list using the following search criteria: 'Contains Label' = 'Uploaded', will allow you to see all studies that have been uploaded via the Upload portal.
The workflow status of uploaded studies is automatically set to 'Finalized' to avoid cluttering the radiologists' reading worklist.
When the study is opened in the viewer, an icon and accompanying message will be displayed indicating that the studies have been uploaded via the Upload portal.
