New Features


V7.3.0 of the Generic Import Tool now supports importing from multiple sheets (previously first sheet only) from Excel .XLS/.XLSX spreadsheets. Users can now map CIs and CI details from sheets beyond  Sheet1, making it possible to import data from multi-sheet spreadsheets.

If you are new to the tool, check out the generic import tool how-to video on our docs site for help getting started. The video demonstrates a .CSV import, however, the process is exactly the same with the exception of opening your .XLS/.XLSX file instead of the .CSV.




  1. Quotes [ “” ] and other special characters could cause an error. Fixed.
  2. Positioning of the “Skip” and ”Next” buttons was inconsistent on some screens. Fixed.
  3. Ignore rows function could remove an extra row in certain situations. Fixed.
