Notes about the import file

  • Beware of unnecessary columns following the document. You must delete them before importing.
  • Beware of shifted data
  • Beware of empty rows
  • To create a new category via .CSV file, you must also assign a unique identifier in the column named “Unique identifier ‘
  • Export a .CSV file via Google Sheet or LibreOffice. The type of encoding should be UTF-8 to avoid problems with accents and / or special characters.
