Schedule automatic XML imports and exports to keep your locations up to date.


Requirements: Web premium subscription


Review XML Location Import Document


If you have a large number of locations that need updates on a regular basis you can schedule a recurring XML import. This option omits the necessity to manually upload locations in a .csv file. You also have the ability to export all of your locations to an XML file by scheduling an automatic XML export process. To activate this feature Bullseye must first set up an FTP site for your account to accept your XML file. Please contact us at 732-868-8463 to set this up.


Upload Files to the FTP Directory: 

  • After your FTP directory has been set up, before your scheduled import runs, move the files you want to import to the FTP directory.
  • When the scheduled import is ready to run, your file will be picked up and imported. The first file in the directory will be imported first.
  • There is no specific naming convention required for your files, you may use the same file name for every upload.
