Bulk Customer Updates Interface
The bulk customer update interface is used to update the details of a large number of customers. It will update the billing cycle, treatment type, payment method or credit control status of all account numbers provided in the interface.
Save a csv file in the correct format in your "Interfaces\Bulk Customer Update Import" folder.
- If the file is successfully processed it is placed in "Interfaces\Bulk Customer Update Import\Archive".

This interface can be manually run at any time from the Scheduled Tasks screen.
