How to Submit Channel Data

Partners wishing to report inventory and point of sale data can use a Text tab-delimited template to upload their files via the Adobe Channel Order Website.



Using the Upload Option

The upload option is a simple method of utilizing the internet to deliver pre-formatted files to Adobe.

Partners choosing to upload with a template should first visit Adobe's EDI web site to obtain the templates and read the documentation regarding the process before they attempt to upload any reporting files.

Please note: To use the upload process, your browser must be JavaScript enabled**

After you have logged onto the Web site, do the following to "upload a file":

  • Select the "Import Inventory/Sales Data" link under the Upload option
  • Select the type of file (either Inventory or Point of Sales) under "File data type"
  • Click "Browse button" to locate the file you want to upload
  • Use the "Comments" field to enter additional comments on the file or general reporting information for example a holiday or that a file is a revised version
  • Complete all fields then click the "Upload" button
  • A confirmation pop-up box will appear once you have successfully uploaded the file. This "Confirmation" message provides transmission details including the type of file loaded and date and time file was sent to Adobe
  • You may want to keep the confirmation message for reference purposes.
  • Repeat steps 2 through 4 for the second file (either the Inventory or Point of Sale)

Note: If you have any issues uploading the files, please contact Grp-reporting@adobe.com
