What data can I integrate with flat files?
Basically all kinds of data processed by Le New Black can be imported and exported in flat files (CSV, TXT...). While many specific files can be imported (such as fabrics or delivery addresses) and exported (such as production reports or sales reports), you will find below a non limitative list of the most common supported data flows:

How can I integrate flat files?
Flat files (e.g. text files containing non-structured data) can be imported and exported in two ways:
This is done via the Integration center user interface. Importing and exporting data from the Integration center is broadly covered in the Brand user guide.
This is done via FTP-based file exchange. If you plan to set up an FTP-based integration, Le New Black will provide you with FTP credentials for accessing your private storage space. This space will let you upload files for import and download files generated by Le New Black. You fill find all details related to flat files naming and directory structure in the flat files automation instructions.
