change_manager_csv_fileOccasionally the same activity needs to be run repeatedly against multiple targets and sources. There are two ways to accomplish this in Change Manager. The activity may be run immediately with a user created .csv spreadsheet. This functionality is described here.

Alternatively the spreadsheet may be incorporated directly into the Activity. This functionality is discussed in the Running an Activity for Different Source and Target Sites section.

The spreadsheet can consist of one or two columns specifying the URLs for sites. If two columns are used, the application will assume that the first column contains the source site and the second the target site.

STEP 1.  Select an activity/group from the Activity View.

STEP 2.  Select Run Using CSV image182 from the Ribbon or from the right-click menu.

STEP 5.  Click Check Connection button to verify that connectivity exists for all the selected sites.

STEP 6.  If a single column of  URLs is loaded, you must also select whether the loaded list should be used for source or target sites.

STEP 8.  The Run Activity History screen will be generated. Enter a comment into the provided interface and click the Run Now button to initiate the activity.
