(More info about usage in attached guide)
1. Create an Import File with all usage for the period (Use the importing template attached in the bottom of the article)
- Make sure the dates in the file is the 1st of the month to import usage for
The main criteria for importing usage is to have:
- Usage key: A unique key that will map the usage (or multiple keys), this basically decides where the usage is going
- Quantity: How much usage it is
- From date: The date the usage was used, or the first date of the period it was used (for example 2019-07-01 for July 2019
- Unit code: What the usage quantity is, for example, hours
Remember that the file has to be CSV.
2. Go to the header Usage
3. Press the three dots
4. Import Usage Items
1. Select File
2. Choose which key you want to map your usage with:
- Account key: If the key is on account level
- Order key: If the key is on order level
- Product key: If the key is on product level
- Charge key: if the key is on charge level
You can use multiple keys, for example, the account name (Account key), order number (Order key), and charge number (Charge key).
3. Make sure everything is mapped correctly (Each header of the importing document must match the field in Younium, for example, the header “UsageKey” must match with the usage key field in Younium)
4. Import Data
5. Error File
If the import encounters errors, you will get a new excel file, or "error file," which will contain the usage rows with an error. This gives you the opportunity to go ahead with the operations for the processed usage, and also resolve the usage rows with errors to then just reimport the error file itself.
