Allow importing items with the same name into different levels of a hierarchy


When importing items into a child list. If there is an item in that hierarchy which already has that name it will be ignored in the import. However if you create the list items manually, you can give items the same name at different levels of the hierarchy.


It would be helpful to be able to flag certain items in list imports to be imported regardless of if they appear in the hierarchy already.


Workarounds for this issue are to use a numbered list for your import or give the child item a slightly different name to that of the parent. E.g Parent - (X), Child - (X.).


Still it would be useful to run an import where if you flag certain items they are imported regardless of if they already appear in the list hierarchy.
