 Import

Import

Click  in the top right corner of the page. The Import dialog will open.

Step 1

  • Download a template in .xlsx or .csv format. If you prefer, you can use your own file – you will have to manually pair your columns if they are in different order.
  • Fill out the import file or copy and paste data into it.
  • Select the file or drag and drop it into the Import dialog. Click Next.

Step 2

Set up your import settings.

  • Use first line: select yes if your columns don't have titles and you would like to include the first line in the import.
  • Import unique name: select yes if your upload file has a column with a Unique name. If you are using the template, it does not contain a Unique name column.
  • Check duplicates: select yes to check for duplicate entries. Checks the Title column by default. If Import unique name is selected, checks Unique name.
  • When found skip: select yes to skip duplicate entries. If you select No, you can set up the action to take if a duplicate is found in the next step.
  • Separator for custom fields with multiple values: if your custom fields with multiple values are all in one column, select the separator.

Click Next when done.

Step 3

Drag the column names on the right hand side to the correct fields on the left hand side. If you used the template, the columns will already be mapped correctly. You can also use the grey buttons next to the Columns heading to pair the columns by title or by order or to remove the current pairings.

If you have set Check duplicates to Yes and set When found skip to No in the previous step, select if you want to Rewrite or Add new for each field if a duplicate is found.

Click Next when done.

Step 4

You will see an overview of the entries that are to be imported. If you like, you can Save your import scheme settings for future use by entering a Scheme title and clicking Create.

Click Import.

Wait for the process to finish. If your import has finished successfully, you will see a notification at the top of your screen. Click Load new data to see your new entries.

If there were any errors, an error log will download automatically. Open it, resolve any errors and repeat the process if necessary.
