For long-time publishers to the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) Registry, files with a large amount of historical data and hundreds of activities can take a long time to generate.
If that's the case, you can now enable an "asynchronous queue" that processes large files in the background and emails you when they're ready. Then, when you export IATI files, you'll either get an immediate response for smaller files, or you'll see a message like this:
Once you get the promised email, you'll see a list of validation errors, or if none, you'll be able to download your IATI file instantaneously.
If you would like to enable background processing for your IATI files, please contact our Helpdesk in your site or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
