Manual Mode

What is Manual Mode?

Manual Mode is a mode of the Generic Connector that allows operators to synchronize data between their application and Zyllem via file upload or by executing the actions through the Zyllem web portal.

When to Use Mode

Manual Mode can be an alternative way for operators to connect with Zyllem if integration via HTTP Mode is not possible.

Limitations

Since synchronization of data is done manually, updates cannot be done in real-time. Nevertheless, if you upload a file, you can specify the timestamps of when the actions were actually completed.

Artifact Support

In Manual Mode, synchronization can be done in two ways: via File Upload or via Manual Action. See table below.

File Upload

Manual Action

Bulk execution

Perform actions on an unlimited number of segments

Perform actions on at most 200 segments at a time

Artifact support

Supports text-based artifacts only (e.g., text fields, COD)

Supports all types of artifacts (upload photos, register signatures, etc.).

Timestamp

Specify the date & time of the action execution

Date & time of execution is based on your activity on the action wizard
