How to Setup Import:

To add the Index XML source files, click Auto Update in the main header of the application.

Step 1 – In the Auto Update screen click on the Append Files tab

Step 2 – In the Index Files box, paste the URLs for the index XML URL(s). If more than one, each should be on its own row.

Step 3 – Click the blue update button to save the URL source files in the system. Note: This does not regenerate the XML files.

Step 4 – If you want to add them immediately and update the hreflang XML site maps you need to click the green RUN on the main Auto-Update screen for your project. These new URLs will not be imported until the next automated update cycle if you do not click run.
