Click on the menu 'Import' and then on the icon with the arrow pointing down to download the Excel template.
The fields marked with an asterisk (*) in the Excel template are mandatory fields.
NB: if you have already entered data on your dashboard (bottom, MyGLN) and then upload an Excel list with information about the same GLN, the information previously entered will be deleted. The system will notify you of this.
To prevent a GLN from being published:
Type [T] (for 'true') in the column 'Public' to publish a GLN. If you do not want a GLN to be published, type [F] (for 'false') in the same column. (See the section on 'Do not publish the GLN' for more information).
To amend the expiry date of a GLN:
The expiry date is managed via the 'From' and 'Until' columns. Enter the date from when the GLN is to be valid in the 'From' column and the date from when the GLN is no longer valid in the 'Until' column. If the field in the 'From' column is left blank, the system automatically enters today's date. If the field in the 'Until' column is left blank, the system automatically registers the GLN as having unlimited validity.
Please note the following format: DDMMYYYY.
To add several contacts for a GLN:
Fill in all the information for the relevant GLN. If you want to link an additional contact with this GLN, duplicate the row for the GLN and adapt the contact details for each additional row.
Please ensure that all your GLN include the check digit. It is easy to generate the check digit free of charge, using our check digit calculator.
Once you have entered your GLN in the Excel document, save the document to your desktop. Then click on the icon with the arrow pointing up to upload your Excel document.
