Bulk Process Action Inquiries

If you have a large volume of action inquiries to process, you can create a CSV file with your resolutions to submit your resolutions in bulk instead of approving each one manually.

Create action inquiry resolutions file

  1. From the left navigation menu, select Transactions → Inquiries.

  2. At the top of the list, ensure the Resolution dropdown is set to New.

  3. Select one of these options:

    • select [Download] → Download as CSV.

      • You can make edits directly to the downloaded file and save them.

    • Alternatively, download this template and modify it with your own data.

    Don't use formulas!

    Do not use any type of formula—only enter exact amounts. The platform will not recognize the result of Excel or Google Sheets formulas, so you will likely incur overage fees if you upload a file that contains formulas in your spreadsheet's cells. Simply convert cell values from formulas to the formulas' results to avoid this problem.
