What is Profile Converter - Getting Started Guide

AYCD Profile Converter is a one-stop hub allowing you to store and universally convert all of your Profiles, edit Spreadsheets, and generate Virtual Cards from several supported providers. The optimal way to use Profile Converter is to use it as your Profile Hub, meaning it is the only place you create profiles, then you can export the profiles you create into the formats that you need. In addition to managing your profiles, you can create Virtual Cards allowing you to assign them to existing profiles, and also edit spreadsheets before exporting them into a bot format!

Creating A Profile | Importing Many Profiles | Profiles with Errors | Importing/Exporting Profiles | Jigging | Mass Edit & Expressions | Profiles Tips and Tricks

This is the main section of Profile Converter and is where all of your Profiles are kept and managed. From here you will have options to create, import, export, edit, organize, and jig your profiles. 

Creating A Profile

To start, we shall look at creating a new profile. To do this, under Profiles click on File > New. Doing this will create a dialog where we can fill in all of the profile information.

Importing Many Profiles

Now that is only adding one Profile at a time. Let's say you have a bunch of profiles and that you want to add them all at once. The best way to do this is to use the Official Google Sheet template that we have. This will allow you to enter all of the profiles into the Google Sheet, and then import them using the CSV/Google Sheet/Form format. You can use this link to make a copy of the Google Sheet Template. Once you create a copy and add the necessary profile information, you will be able to download it from Google Sheets. (File > Download > Comma-separated values)

Once you have downloaded the Google Sheet, you can import it directly into Profile Converter. PLEASE ENSURE THAT ONCE YOU HAVE DOWNLOADED THE CSV FROM GOOGLE SHEETS YOU DO NOT OPEN IT IN MICROSOFT EXCEL. Opening it in Microsoft Excel will mess up the CSV format and will result in the profile information being imported incorrectly.

Now that you have your Google Sheet downloaded you are finally ready to import it. From here, you have a few options. You can drag the file from the folder you saved it to right over the top of the Profiles section. This will trigger the import dialog allowing you to choose a format and import it directly. Alternatively, you can also import using File > Import > Clicking on the Paper icon and locating the file, then press Import.

Profiles With Errors

When creating or importing profiles, be it your own or if you are running slots, sometimes you may end up importing profiles with errors or that are incomplete. In order to bring your attention to these profiles, Profile Converter will highlight them with a Warning Triangle. In order to determine what on the profile is causing an error or is unable to be validated, you can hover over the profile and it will tell you what fields have errors. Once you know what is causing an error with the Profile, you can edit it in order to resolve it. Something to note is that when exporting profiles with an error, they will not be included in the export by default. You will need to click on the checkbox to allow profiles with errors to be exported.

Importing/Exporting Profiles

While we looked at Importing Profiles earlier, I want to cover it again here before we get into one of the core features of Profile Converter: being able to export your Profiles to over 100+ different bot formats.

Importing

When importing your profiles, be it in the CSV format, or in the format of a Supported Bot Import, you have two options for import. You can drag the file you are importing into the Profiles section. This will create a dialog asking you to specify the format you are importing. Optionally you can also use the File > Import option and then select the file using the file chooser and the format before pressing import to import the Profiles. 

Exporting

Once you have Profiles inside of Profile Converter you can look at exporting those profiles into one or more of the supported bot formats that we have. Profile Converter will export selected profiles or all Profiles depending on your selection. To do that you will need to go to File > Export. This will create a dialog with the list of Bot Export Formats of which you can choose one or multiple. Here you can also set favorites to appear at the top of your list by clicking on Favorites and then selecting Profiles.

Jigging

Jigging allows you to create multiple profiles from one by creating slight variations to the profile information. This allows you to bypass websites multiple order detection and allows you to ship orders with slightly varied information to the same address. There are a few options in order to jig a profile.

Edit Profile

When you jig a profile from the Edit or Create Profile Dialog it allows you to jig the existing information without creating a copy of an existing profile. To do that you can edit a Profile and under Advanced Jig Options there are some options that allow you to jig the profile Name, Email, Phone Number, and Address.

Jig for One or Multiple Profiles

Rather than just the Edit Profile option, there is also the ability to Jig multiple profiles using the Edit > Jig button which opens up a number of options for jigging giving you more control over the types of jigs you can use.

mceclip9.png

Create in Category: This is where your jigged profiles will be located after jigging them. To create a new category, simply type a name for the category, and it will be created. 

Number of Jigs for each Profile: This will allow you to specify the number of profiles you want to be created. For example, If you have 2 profiles selected you are jigging, and write 2 in the box, 4 profiles will be created.

The Checkboxes: The checkboxes for Name, Email, Phone Address, Billing Address, and Shipping Address allow you to specify which profile fields you want to be jigged, if you unselect one, Profile Converter will not change that field.

Only Checkout Once: This will allow you to change the "Only Checkout Once" option in your profile. If this setting is turned on it means if you are running the same profile on multiple tasks in your bot, and 1 of those tasks checks out, it will stop the other task.  

CatchAll Email Domain: If you would like to quickly assign a random catch-all email to all of your profiles, simply type in your catch-all in this format: "@yourcatchallhere" another example: "@aycd.io"

Mass Edit & Expressions

Mass Edit gives you the ability to edit specific fields of a profile across any number of selected profiles. This can be especially useful if you are looking to adjust a field common across many profiles, or if you are looking to get into using the new expressions we have added support for. Keep in mind that currently Expressions will only work in this dialog and will not work on import or anywhere else at the moment. We will be adding them elsewhere in future updates. They allow you to do more advanced Jigs enabling a bunch of new ways to interact with your profile.

Mass Edit

In order to Mass Edit profiles, you will need to select the profiles you wish to edit. There are a number of ways to select profiles you can read about them in the FAQ section under Selecting Multiple Profiles. After you have selected the profiles you wish to edit click on Edit > Mass Edit/Jig which will show the dialog pictured below. Here if you wish to edit a field, click on the checkbox beside it and then type the change you would like to make. This will apply that change to all of the selected profiles.

Expressions/Jig

Expressions are used in the same Mass Edit dialog. You can access the legend of available expressions by clicking on Available Expressions near the bottom of the dialog which will expand showing the available expressions. You can click on them to get a description and example of how they are used, and even test expressions before using them to edit Profiles.

Profiles Tips and Tricks

Below are some tips and tricks that are specific to the Profiles section and will help to make things even easier for you as you manage your profiles and continue to use Profile Converter.

Dragging and Dropping Profiles: We added the ability to now select profiles then drag and drop them into existing categories, or over the empty space to create a new one! You can also create a new category by selecting profiles and clicking the Create Category button at the bottom.

Copy, Cut and Paste Profiles: In addition to being able to drag and drop profiles between categories, you can now also copy and paste them. To do this you can select a set of profiles, press CTRL + C which will copy it or CTRL + X which will cut it from where it is then paste it using CTRL + V. This will create a copy of the profile wherever you pasted it, or if you cut, it will move them to your paste location.

Send to Spreadsheets: Send to Spreadsheets allows you to send profiles you have in Profiles to the Spreadsheets allowing you to make edits there or get them ready for export to a supported Bot format that uses CSVs or XLXS formats. You can use Send to Spreadsheets by selecting profiles and then clicking on Options > Send to Spreadsheets.

Export Favorites: Setting favorites is a great way to make exporting profiles to bots you use regularly faster than ever. When you go to export a Profile under File > Export towards the bottom there is a favorites button. Clicking that will create a dialog with a dropdown allowing you to select favorites which will then appear at the top of your export list in green.

Google Forms and Sheets

For those who run slots, or ACO services for Drops we have created a Google Form template. This allows you to make a copy of the form in order to collect the information from your clients and ultimately import the Google Sheet it makes directly into Profile Converter. While you may customize this form it is import to ensure that you do not change or delete any of the preset fields on the form.

Google From Template (Please DM Stealthy#0001 to Request Access)

Google Sheet Template 

As the public Google Form is disabled and available by request only it is recommended that you create a copy of it to store within your own drive. 

 

Virtual Cards

In Profile Converter you can now generate new Virtual Cards from supported providers. In addition to generating new cards, you can also import existing cards as well as assign them directly to profiles in Profile Converter. 

Adding Credentials | Generating New Cards | Importing Existing Cards | Add to Profiles

Adding Credentials

In order to generate cards or import them, you will first need to add your Provider Credentials to Profile Converter. In order to do that Click on Virtual Cards along the top, then the Lock Icon (Provider Credentials) In order to begin adding credentials.
mceclip16.png

After you select the Provider all of them will require you to set a name.  This field cannot be changed after you save the credentials, so make sure to set it to something you are going to remember. After that, each provider requires slightly different information in order to add them but after you enter the required information click on save.

Generating New Cards

Once you have added your provider credentials you can go back to Cards and start a Generate task. To do that, go to File > Generate and select the Provider from the dropdown. As each provider has slightly different requirements when generating the dialog that shows after the drop-down may be a bit different than the Privacy on here. Each field has a description above it providing you with some information on what it is. Provide the required information and press Generate. For Capital One there is a Card Index field, is for those with multiple cards under the same Capital One Account and will allow you to specify the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc card in the app to be used for importing or generating.mceclip17.png

When a task is running you will be able to find the current status along with any errors under the time in the top right. You can either click on that status or go to Options > View Tasks in order to view the Task List with currently running tasks, statuses, and any other errors or messages.

Importing Existing Cards

In addition to generating new Virtual Cards, we also have the ability to import existing cards that have been made outside of Profile Converter. To import profiles it is a very similar process to generating where you click on File > Import and a dialog will come up allowing you to select the provider as well as some common and provider-specific options.

Add to Profiles

The last step in the process of generating cards is being able to add those cards to profiles. Be it creating new profiles or adding cards to existing profiles Profile Converter makes it easy to quickly make use of the cards you have just generated.

mceclip1.png

Add to Existing Profiles

If you have profiles already in Profile Converter that you want to assign your created cards to click on Options > Add to Existing Profiles. This will trigger a dialog asking you to select a category of profiles in order to have the selected Virtual Cards be attached to those profiles.

 

Create New Profiles

If you want to instead create brand new profiles from your newly created Virtual Cards you can click Options > Add to Profiles. This will trigger the dialog below which will allow you to create a profile manually and using the supported expressions. Optionally you can use the Use Existing Profile button which will allow you to import a base profile to use in order to create the additional profiles from.
