Step 5: Once you have your Trustpilot reviews in the CSV template, go back to the import page and click 'Upload file,' make sure the Date format is the same as in your template, for example, YYYY-MM-DD, and click the top right 'Upload reviews' button.
And that's it! Your Trustpilot reviews will appear on the selected source page.
