1. Use [POST] /user/v2/inputfiles endpoint to first upload the Excel file. 
2. Use the returned reference Id from the [POST] /user/v2/inputfiles endpoint in the questions JSON payload of [POST] /api/user/v2/workflows/{appId}/jobs endpoint.
3. To include the sheet name, add in three pipe characters (|||) followed by the name of the sheet after the reference Id.
  "questions": [
      "name": "File Browse (4)",
      "value": "603770dfb36f00008d002d97|||`Sheet1$`"
