Import Mapping

From Fishbowl

Jump to: navigation, search

Icon.Import Mapping.png The Import Mapping module, located in the General group, is an add-on module that can be installed from the Small.Plugin.png Plugin module. After installing the plugin, a new module is added that allows files to be imported, even if the column headers don't match the Fishbowl format. This allows many external files to be imported into Fishbowl without modification.
