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.
