  • Importing calculated fields is not supported. "Calculated fields" means field types that do not allow the user to actively write values. (Autonumber, Formula, Lookup, Last edited time, Created times, Last edited by, Create by, e.g.)
  • The following field types are not supported: Attachment, Member, One-way Link, and Two-way Link.
  • When importing data with the Multi-select field type, options should be separated by the English symbol ",".
  • If the imported file includes a Date field, it should be in either of the following formats: YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss or YYYY/MM/DD hh:mm:ss.
  • For the best experience, import using a file generated by Microsoft Excel or WPS.
