Locations File Data Input and Type

Learn about Data Input format and type for Locations

Last updated on November 8th, 2021

Scope

This articles covers the data type and format for Location data. This includes the Location and Content List data. This article is limited to the data format and types of data fields of the import/export file. For API, please refer to the official API documentation and its Object Models.

Introduction

To keep a certain consistency in the data input process and to ensure the data flow and submission to directories, Uberall has a set of rules limiting the input format of certain data fields. These formatting rules mostly apply to the API and the import/export file since the data is purely text-based. Some format rules do also apply to the user interface portion of the platform, though most of the format-heavy fields will be handled through dropdown lists or another piece of selectable element.
