Importing File

Setting up an import for thousands of posts is very similar to manually creating a post. You create a template for your posts that All Import tool uses when importing your data. To set add data from your import file to your import template, you simply drag and drop it.

STEP # 01: Upload Your File #

Go to your website and under main menu click on All Import ->  New Import.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Upload File #

STEP # 02 #

You will be directed to the below page. Here you can choose to upload the file from your computer, paste in a URL to the file, or choose an existing file that you’ve already used with All Import tool.

STEP # 03 #

After uploading the file, you have to choose from one of the two options:

  • New Items ->  Create only new items.
  • Existing Items -> If you are importing data from your file into posts that are already in your site, select Existing Items.

Step # 04 #

Finally, you need to decide what you want to import, select the desired option from the dropdown and press the continue to Step 2 button.

Review your Data #

STEP # 05 #

All Import tool will process your file and prepare it for import. If you uploaded a CSV, check that the correct delimiter was used. If you uploaded an XML file, check that the correct node was selected.

If you only want to import some of the records in your import file you can add filter rules.

Click on Continue to Step 3.

Configure your Import #

STEP # 06 #

Every column or element from your import file will be displayed on the right. On the left you have your import. All Import tool will create posts using the import template you create here. Simply drag your import data from right to left. You can fill in as much or as little of the fields as you like depending on your needs.

  • Order Details Section:

 

  • Billing & Shipping Details Section:

To find meta keys for entering in the custom fields.
