Data Source, and how to upload It

In order to create a campaign, you need a data source. If you’re not sure what a data source is, what it’s supposed to look like, and where to get it, click here where you’ll find all the necessary information.

If you have your feed ready to go, you can click one of the blue 'Add source' buttons and get straight down to business.


You can select the type of your new data source, we will show how to work with XML,CSV,JSON for this one.


And now let’s talk about how to upload your data source. (You can read on our blog how to add Google Sheets as a data source. The procedure is not significantly different, though.)


1.) name your feed first. 2.) Then paste the feed URL with the extension xml/csv/json. 3.) If your feed is encrypted, you can also insert the username and password so the app can read it. 4.) Finally, you also have the option to choose how the application will behave if any row in the feed is empty.



In advanced setup, you can also choose file encoding specification. This is for when you don't have a classic UTF feed. It may result in displaying special characters instead of values, etc... With this setting, you can customize the encoding to the one your feed contains:

Dotidot will now import your products: 


Make sure that all your products are uploaded correctly and if the number of products is in line with the number of products in your feed.

If the data wasn’t uploaded, make sure that the source is valid. If it is but there’s still a problem of some sorts, feel free to contact our support team on email and we'll figure out a solution together.
