Uploading your stock: uploading a CSV

To load your stock data into Community Insight you can either copy and paste a list of postcodes or you can upload a CSV file. 

This article will run through how to upload your stock data by uploading a CSV file. 

Please note: You must ensure that your CSV is formatted correctly, for guidance on how to format your upload check out this article:

Click Admin > Manage Stock


If you are simply uploading the location of your stock- without using the stock types feature: 

  • You can upload simply one column of data with postcodes
  • This will work with or without headers


You can also assign a UPRN to each of your postcodes.

  • The UPRN is a Unique Property Reference Number
  • Each row of data must have a different UPRN, even if they are the same postcode. The UPRN must be unique for each row of data 
  • If your organisation does not use UPRNS, upload the postcodes and Community Insight will assign each of your stock a UPRN
  • When you download a list of all your stock, you will see these in the first column. Check out this article for guidance on downloading a list of all your stock:


If you are uploading the location of stock and want to assign stock types:

  • The CSV file must contain 3 columns, UPRN, Postcode & Stock Type (in that order)
  • You can also download a template CSV file which will show how the file must be formatted

See below for how your upload should look:

Once this has uploaded you will receive the below message and you can then view your stock on the map.
