A checkmark will next to each file as it finishes uploading, and Panopto will alert you when it is safe to close the window.

Note that Panopto will continue processing and adding ASR captions to files after the upload finishes, and you may not be able to edit, move, or copy the recordings until these processes are complete. The exact time required depends on the recording length, file size, media formatting, and server load, but it is often only a few minutes and should not be longer than a few hours for average recordings.
