How to Submit and Update Block Orders


You can place and update block orders in three different ways:

  1. You can upload an order using our Excel templates
  2. You can create/update your order in an Excel file, and thereafter copy the orders and paste it directly into the application
  3. You can create/update your order directly in the order editor


1. Upload an order using Excel templates

  • Start by either 1) downloading an empty Excel template or 2) exporting an existing order. For further instruction on this and how to fill in the excel template, see this link
  • Enter block order(s) in the Excel template by filling in name, from, to, volume (if profile block, leave this field blank and fill in volume under the relevant hours instead), price and minimum acceptance ratio %. For detailed description of this, see this link
  • Save the order file on your computer
  • Click "Upload" in the bottom left corner of the platform and either 1) drag and drop the file, or 2) "Select from your computer"


Orders can be updated by uploading a new version of Excel templates. Blocks and Exclusive groups with identical name as orders already submitted will be updated, not doubled. Curve orders will be updated as well.
