As soon you have successfully uploaded you see an overview about your uploaded file. You see the file name and you can delete it which redirects you back to the upload screen. You will see the App title and the Environment Name to which you are uploading your build. If you want you can add Release Notes. Such release notes your testers will see, as soon they install your application. If you click on Save your build will be uploaded to the displayed App & Environment and you will be redirected to the Build History.
Overview about uploaded build
Release Notes can be added as plain text as well with line breaks.
Updraft will alert you if you upload an app that uses a different bundle ID or package name than the previously uploaded files.
