CSV files can have up to 3 columns (without headers):

The First column contains the message of your post (text and/or link). REQUIRED

The Second column contains the URL of the image you want in your post. If you want to create a post without an image, you can leave this column empty. OPTIONAL
Note that this is where you put your image URL. If you want a link in your post, that goes in the First column.

The Third column lets you set the date and time of each post. OPTIONAL
The format should be: YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm
For Example: 2018-12-24 13:05

Note: If the third column is left blank, you can select the date and time of each post after the posts have been uploaded.

There is a maximum limit of 200 posts per CSV.

TIP: For Google My Business CTA buttons, those can be added after the CSV is uploaded: Can I add CTA buttons for Google My Business posts that are bulk uploaded?

Before uploading to OneUp, make sure to export the file as a CSV.
In Google Sheets, you can do so under File => Download => comma-seperated values (.csv)

You can put all links/URLs in the message of your post (column 1), and OneUp will automatically extract it.

The image URL in the Second column must be a publicly accessible URL. That means it can't be stored on a private Google Drive or something similar.

You can use Imgur (free) to upload images via CSV. Once you upload an image to Imgur, remember to use the image URL, instead of the page URL.

For example:
https://i.imgur.com/r2BPSdo.jpg instead of https://imgur.com/gallery/vMdP4Qh

Correct image URLs should end with either .jpg or .png. To get the correct image URL in Imgur, right-click on an image and click "Open image in new tab".

Correct GIF URLs should end with .gif, and NOT .gifv
