Import Data into the system when logged in offline on the installed/desktop software
Before you begin to import data into the system offline, you need to know to these critical points:
1: You can ONLY import in data for the group of athletes/players that you are currently viewing on the offline tool. Remember that you cannot currently change groups on the offline tool. To do this you need to login online and save a different group.
If you have access to Import Data on your system, you will now have the Import Data Module available on the Offline system
Click on Import Data to select which Event Form data you want to import. Please be aware that you will only be able to import data for the group of athletes you are currently viewing.
Now click on the import file button and select the correctly formatted .csv file that you want to import
Map the usernames across and click Next (at the bottom of the page) once you have completed all of the names
If any option fields haven't been mapped across you will need to do it on this page. The example here shows that all fields have mapped. Click Import
If you have any failures or if an red error messages appear check the following points
1: Did you have any required fields in the Event Form?
-If you have a required field in the event form then all of the records that you are importing in must ALL have this required field data or it will not import
2: Did you have the correct list of athletes
3: Was the data that you imported saved as a .csv file (not an .xls or xlsx)
4: Did you map across the date formats and fields correctly?
5:Did the spreadsheet have any strange characters in it like "&" or "," in a field name. If so, remove these and try the import again
Any of the points above could cause the import to fail
