  1. In the top menu bar on the right-hand side there is a menu option called ‘Admin’.
  2. You can either hover over ‘Admin’ which will show you a dropdown menu and select ‘Data Imports’ or click ‘Admin’ and a left-side menu will appear, and you can click ‘Data Imports’ from here.
  3. Click the dropdown labelled ‘Import Type’.
  4. Choose ‘Meter Consumptions’ and open the downloaded Excel template.
  5. Complete the fields in the template. As a minimum, the mandatory fields for this upload are:
    • Customer Name
    • MPAN/MPRN/SPID
  6. When you are happy you have filled in all important Meter Consumption data, save the spreadsheet as a CSV file.
  7. Go to Admin > Data Imports
  8. Select ‘Meter Consumptions’ in the dropdown then ‘Upload’.
  9. Choose File (and find the spreadsheet you saved on your computer) then click Save.
  10. If your upload is successful the status column will say ‘Completed’.
