Bulk URLs import

The bulk URL import is a very important feature and very useful when you have more than one URL to upload.

Here is a step on how you can do it:

  1. Click on Contents on the side menu from your dashboard
  2. Click on Add Content from your Contents overview
  3. Click on the bulk import URLs below the other options
