Automation feature for Receiver accounts

Automation feature for Receiver accounts

Automation Overview


With the Automation feature, you can create, edit and run scripts in the UI to automate processes or repetitive tasks, and it doesn't require you to spin up your own server or automation environment. An example use case is if you are a hybrid user that uses both Brand and Receiver accounts, you can automate the data from your Receiver account to go into your Brand account so you can edit the data for your own specific e-commerce publishing needs.
