managing hours for 500+ locations

Hello- I manage listings for 500+ pages and am new to the position, is it possible to do a bulk upload of store hours to update them? Or do I have to go thru 1 by 1? also I will be posting special holiday hours as well. Can i do a bulk upload for that?

 

How long will it take for these updates to post?

Hello jay,
My understanding is that you upload the entire spreadsheet with the necessary modifications for the appropriate fields.
When parsed, the fields that have been changed would be updated.

if the edits are the same for all stores, or many of the stores share the same update, probably it would be easier to do the updates using the graphical interface and applying the edits for all the selected stores.

ok- so I need to upload everything or just a blank spreadsheet with the information that I want uploaded?

for example...do I just upload the store code and the hours? or everything?

I am also going to edit a few other things...so my question is, do I just list in the spreadsheet what I wanted update?
or do I list everything?

Hello jay,

For my answer is very simple and easy just download your listings as spreadsheet and edit via Google Sheet and upload again that's all

Good luck
