  • Trim leading and trailing spaces from the entire sheet. If available, we recommend using the Excel add-in Ablebits to do this.

  • Column header names must follow the exact same naming scheme as provided or the import upload will fail. 

  • Blank rows are considered empty and skipped by the importer. 

  • It is possible to successfully upload 0 rows of information, as long as all required columns are present, the importer will still “succeed”.

  • Overwrites will be performed on any data that has been changed between exporting/importing.
