Select a data source to continue, see each data source FAQ here for specific information on connecting your account to Importacular and bringing in data. For all sources, once the data has been loaded you should follow the below procedure.

File (CSV or Excel) Import

Press the binoculars to select a CSV or Excel file. For Excel you can also select the worksheet to import from.


Once a File is selected click’ Retrieve Data’ (if you are working with a data source such as Classy, Eventbrite or EveryAction, you will click ‘Ok’) and the below screen will appear.

You can now select an existing template from the dropdown menu or add a new one; see the Creating Mappings section for more details.

Once you have created or selected a mapping template see Step 3 – Review data prior to importing.
