    1. Replace the timestamp with a * at the end of the file name and check the Automatic Imports checkbox if you expect to do auto-imports.

    2. The * will ensure the auto-import process works correctly if any text from a timestamp or otherwise is appended to the end of the file name.

The * matches any characters present in a file name. It is recommended that you put your file extension after the * to ensure it only matches the files you want.

  1. Select the “Automatic Imports” checkbox if you want the Audience list to update whenever Audiences notices the customer drops a new file in the SFTP.

  1. Hit Save.

  2. You will then see a screen listing all the imports for that list where you can monitor the status of your import.
