Uploading NAB files involves a two step process:
- Step 1
Files are uploaded
As the process is disconnected. The software doesn't know the file has been accepted. The SLA on Bank processing is about 30 minutes.
In the interim, the software will provide the indicator that the Upload has been successful (until a message is sent advising otherwise).
In the account register, the transaction upload status appears as "purple" indicating that the file has been uploaded pending approval. A prompt is provided to the user to "Continue to check status - The file has been received by NAB".
- Step 2
After 20-30 minutes a response is provided by NAB. The successful response is that the file is valid and can be processed.
File Status Update
The file status may be updated two ways:
- The Status can be polled.
See the instructions for polling the status.
- The Status is updated by a background process
