Multiple Import Actions - Same Source & Target

Multiple Import Actions - Same Source & Target

Hi,

 

I wish to create 2 import Actions where it is utilising the same Source Object & Target Object but there is only 1 action (which is the last upload) and hence I need to re-map etc when I wish to perform the latter Action

 

The Source Object is a CSV file and which contains multiple columns. The Line-Item mapping on 1 Action uses 1 of the columns while the other action uses another column

 

Can I create 2 saved Actions for this purpose?

 

Many thanks

 

Mark

Hi Mark,

 

You can create different saved views of the required line items of target, then import in individual saved view.

 

Thanks

Thanks for the quick reply

 

I created a Saved View, opened it and then went through the process of the Import but this did not create a new Action but overwrote the previous Action

 

Did I misinterpret your reply?

 

Thanks

Hey Mark,

 

Sorry to have misunderstood you. Upon experimenting, I also experienced the similar situation.

Alternatively,

Since, your source is a .csv file. You can import all line items of .csv source file in a module (dummy Source module).  Create saved views in that module and import from those saved views to your target module.

This will fulfill your requirement of multiple actions.

 

Thanks
