Is it possible to change some fields in a an existing users CSV entry and re-import without creating a duplicate entry?
Example. An entry starts off with one category in the directory and later needs added to a second category.
I know this can be changed at the back end manually per entry, but with a large directory and many entries needing updated at a later date then it would be good to able to re-import and not duplicate entries.02/13/2019 at 10:58 am #484544
Navigate to the Connections : Tools admin page and use the Export All tool found at the bottom of the Export tap.
Make your changes, and import the updated CSV file.
Hope this helps!
ps. Make sure you are using the most recent version of CSV Import.02/13/2019 at 12:31 pm #484547
I tried that, it updated the categories but it removed all the images in the directory entries.02/13/2019 at 12:42 pm #484548
Did the CSV file have the photo and logo columns are were they populated?02/13/2019 at 12:55 pm #484550
I exported the CSV and when I looked in the file it had a Column “Logo URL” and a “Photo URL” Column. Any entries with attached photos had a URL in the columns
Example http://dev.XXXXXXYYY.com/wp-content/uploads/connections-images/User name/example.png
Just to clarify – I exported using the Connections Tools menu and imported using the CSV import plugin which is up to date.02/13/2019 at 1:17 pm #484553
When importing, during the mapping step, were the Logo/Photo URLs columns in the CSV file mapped to the Logo/Photo Fields?02/13/2019 at 2:40 pm #484560
I did a completely new test…
- I edited a directory entry in the backend editor and added a logo image and photo image from files on the PC.
- I checked by viewing that the images were there.
- I exported all as a CSV file
- I edited the entry in that CSV file to add another category
- Saved the file then imported, noting that the photo and logo fields were mapped (see screenshot)
- The entry has the changes for the categories but no images appear. Note that they do not exist in the media library – is that normal, i.e. after adding them in the back end for that entry should they be in the Media library?

Hmmm… what happen if you make change to the CSV file and then import it, but do not map the Photo/Logo fields?02/14/2019 at 10:10 am #484632

Great to know. I’ll have to work out a method that happen automatically when updating.
