Creating Packages in Bulk

Fed up creating packages one by one? Learn how to create them in bulk instead!

Instead of having to create packages one-by-one, you can easily create hundreds or even thousands of packages at once using the Create Packages in Bulk functionality. 

This feature allows you to download a template, which you have to fill out and import back into the system.
