Step 2. Complete the sample file

  1. Open the Sample-Asset-File.csv file in Microsoft Excel.
  2. Remember the data in this file is a sample, you must delete these rows as you do not want to import these in.


  1. Under each of the Column Headers, complete the row data. For details on the data, see Assets Import Template Data.

  2. Navigate to the file and select it. The file name displays in the screen.
  3. Click the Map Data button. The import file fields display.

Step 4. Map the data

The Map Data table shows which fields from the import file are being mapped to the fields in the application. Use the Map Data table to align the correct fields from the import file to the application. In this example, Status is mapped to Serial, which needs to be corrected.

Use the Import and Errors tabs to validate and review your data before importing.

  1. The import tab displays successful line items. In this example, one truck will be imported successfully.



  1. Click on the Errors tab. The line items with errors display. All records can be edited before importing. In this example, two of the trucks have errors present in the file. This must be corrected before the trucks can be imported.


Fields highlighted in:

  • Red, such as Budget Group, indicates that a required field is missing information and must be filled in.
  • Yellow, such as Asset Type, indicates that the entered asset type does not exist but will be created upon importing.

Let's look at how to correct the errors.

  4. In the Default Budget field, enter the budget, for example: Operations.


  1. Click anywhere to exit the Default Budget field. The text saves automatically and the line moves to the import tab.


  1. Review all the data in the import tab and correct any errors. Drag the scroll bar from left to right in the bottom row to view all the mapped fields.


  1. Now you are ready to import. Click on the Import button.


The trucks are now imported and available in the assets module.
