Data can be uploaded usually in CSV format to an ftp account provided by Imonggo technical support team. Imonggo scans the incoming folder every 10 minutes for incomings files and process them accordingly.
The file uploaded should strictly follow the file naming convention as described in this document. This will allow Imonggo to process the file correctly including deriving the account id from the file name, checking for duplicate batch, etc.
In case of error in the processing, the administrator will be notified via email with diagnostic detail. The administrator email must be setup from the Control Center -> Account Settings.
Upon completion of the processing, the CSV files whether successful or failed, will be archived. These files will automatically be removed in 30 days.
