Steps to start the upload for Spreadshirt
On this page we clarify some steps you should follow before your upload.
After you have made your settings and preparations, you can now start getting your data from your spreadsheet into the tool. Therefore use the Import Forms.
After you have successfully imported your data into the tool, it will look something like this, depending on your user interface settings:
Spreadshirt listings imported to the Workspace
Before you can upload, you should make sure that all data has been imported correctly.
Expand your Row and check if your listing was imported correctly.
Successfully imported Listing
In our example everything was imported successfully. If the language labels weren't green you could hover them to see what's wrong. Mostly this will tell you that a translation might be necessary.
Yellow warnings do not stop you from starting the upload. The tool can also translate during the upload process. However, we recommend to perform all possible steps in the tool.
If you want to translate before uploading, you can do this for each row individually by right-clicking on a row and selecting Translate, or if you want to translate all rows at once, you can click Select All in the Workspace Controls and then the Translation icon.
If you want to check your trademarks in LazyMerch, it is recommended to do it after the translation. If you have activated the Initial Check, the TM button will already show you by color if the entries you imported contain trademarks or not. Furthermore, you should have checked if your trademark settings show the Nice classes you want.

After you have conscientiously completed all the previous steps, the next step is the launch. You have the following options:
To upload a single design or several selected ones, select the desired quantity and right-click on one of the selected designs. In the right click options select "Upload selected".
Upload Selected Right Click Option
To start the upload for one platform only, in our case MBA, you can right-click on MBA in the collapsed platform navigation bar and select the Play button to start.
Right Click Option of the Platform Navigation Bar
This screenshot is showing this by an example of starting MBA. It works the same if you selected Spreadshirt.
Or if the Platform Navigation Bar is expanded, you can reach the Play button without right-clicking.

If you click the Run All button at the top right of the workspace, all platforms in which you have loaded listings will start. There is also a Run Sequenced option that allows you to control how many platforms can run at the same time.
