  1. You can create the file with two columns: "Candidate ID" and "Consent to Marketing" - which will be the fields populated. In the second column, you will insert the value that you would like to change, whether is "ACCEPTED" or "NOT_ACCEPTED". 

  2. After saving it (remember to always save in UTF-8 format, check this KBA 2532449 if you face issues) you can open Integration Center, click in "Create" and select the option "Scheduled CSV Input Integration" and then "Candidate" as starting entity

  4.  After you upload your file, the columns will be synchronized and it is possible to proceed with the connection between the fields. Change to "Field Mapping View" and click on the respective field from the left side, grab it and drag to the field in the middle column. It is necessary to do this action for both fields:

Note: Run Preview will only work for small batch of data (around 10 applications). If you will need to upsert more than that, you will need to upload the file in SFTP and run the job. Also, the required field is enforced when updating data. If the required information is not provided, the upsert will fail.
