How to upload configuration files properly? UC software 5.7.1 on a Polycom VVX401

When trying to activate a  new feature/features I download and extract the configuration files to a new folder on my desktop. I have tried importing for example features.cfg from there into import configuration files on the phone web browser in the utilities sections. Am I supposed to upload the files one by one or is there a file that will activate all the features at once? If I import lets say the features.cfg do I have to convert it to a text file and set that line to ="1" to enable a specific feature?

The last one explains that all files within the \Config subdirectory of a downloaded firmware are just templates.
