Before using a Data Feed in a Flexitive design, you will first need to upload your data feed to your Flexitive site.


To upload a Data Feed, first, enter the Admin Panel by clicking the 'Admin' option to the Right of the Need Support Widget on your site.



After entering the Admin Panel, open the 'Settings' tab to access a list of your Data Feeds.



Once you've opened the SettingsĀ tab, it is possible to Upload a New Data File, Add a Feed from a URL or Edit an Existing Feed.



Uploading a New Data File


The first upload option when adding a new data feed to your Flexitive site is to Upload a New Data File.



To upload a new data file to Flexitive, click the Upload New Data File button in the Settings panel. Next, in the modal that appears in the pace of the Upload New Data File button, click UploadĀ and select a file to upload to Flexitive.


At this time, you can upload CSV, XML, XLS and XLSX files to Flexitive to be used as data feeds.



Once you've uploaded your file, click Next. You can then enter a name for your data feed and click 'Submit'.



After clicking Submit, the feed will be added to your site and is added to the list of feeds in your Settings tab.




Add a Feed From a URL


If you have a URL where the file for your data feed is already hosted, it is also possible to upload a data feed by providing that URL.


To input a URL, click on 'Add Feed From URL' in the Settings tab.


After clicking 'Add Feed from URL', copy and paste the URL for your feed into the 'Enter URL' field in the modal that appears, and click 'Next'.



Next, enter a name for your data feed and click 'Submit'.



After clicking Submit, the feed will be added to your site and is added to the list of feeds in your Settings tab.



Editing an Existing Feed


After you've uploaded a feed to the Flexitive, you can edit the feed as necessary.


If your feed was uploaded to Flexitive using a local file from your computer, you can:

  • Upload a New File - Uploading a new file will overwrite the file you uploaded previously as a data feed


  • Change the Name of Your Feed - You can change the name of your feed by clicking the edit icon for the feed


  • Delete your Feed - You can Delete your feed by clicking the delete button for the feed. Deleting a feed is permanent, and can't be undone

If your feed was uploaded to Flexitive using a URL, you can:

  • Refresh the URL - If a change was made to the URL for your feed, you can refresh the feed to apply that change to your feed in Flexitive


  • Change the Name or URL of Your Feed - You can change the name or URL for your feed at any time by clicking the edit icon for the feed

  • Delete your Feed - You can Delete your feed by clicking the delete button for the feed. Deleting a feed is permanent and can't be undone
