Using Custom Setpoint Schedule from File in Resstock

I am trying to use a custom setpoint file to set the heating/cooling setpoints in for buildings using resstock. I've created more HeatingSetpoint options called "From File" in the housing_characteristics/options_lookup that when sampled should take the setpoint from one of several different setpoint files specified by an additional argument in options_lookup.tsv.

I've added the extra filename arguments to the ResidentialHVACHeatingSetpoints measure, but I have no idea how to connect the "HVAC.apply_heating_setpoints" method to retrieve the setpoints from the corresponding .csv file. Would this have something to do with the generated "schedules.csv" file?

Any advice or other ways to accomplish this would be great, thanks!
