We recently released a very cool feature that lets our users push custom data using CSV files. This feature is currently in closed beta for some clients, but it’s expected to be opened to everyone in the following weeks.
Here’s a quick How-To guide to setup your custom data connection and work with it.
First off, how is structured a CSV file?
A CSV file is basically an Excel file that was exported in a Comma Separated Values format. Meaning you have only rows and columns. Plain data without any formatting. This format is typical among almost all tools that allow data exportation.
Here’s an example:
Secondly, the data mapping
Go into the File Template Tab (if you have access to the data push API, of course) and create a new template. A template means that you won’t have to do this process each time you upload a CSV file. We’ll know that your CSV file matches this template.
