        4. Download the CSV template.
          • XPO allows you to download all of the 6 extension templates from this step. See below for more information on these templates. However, as mentioned in step 3, only the selected creative type can be uploaded.
          • The additional downloaded templates can be for future use.

        5. Click Upload and then Save. You can now link the extension creatives individually, in any Search campaign or ad group under the selected account from step 2.

          • You can proceed to upload the file with the errors as well, but the rows with errors will be automatically removed.
