CSV import

Import your data from a CSV file.

First line of the CSV file must contain field names. Fields must be comma-separated, text fields that contain comma must be surrounded with double quotes "...".

Before importing the CSV file create all fields in Database > Edit fields section.

Also, if you import the Location field, first choose the language of addresses in Database > Edit fields > Location > Language.

Location Import as "lat,lng" coordinates or as an "address" string. If you import an address - it gets converted to coordinates. If you import coordinates - they get converted to an address. And then both values (address & coordinates) are stored in the _Location_ field.

Please note that Google allows only 50 requests per second to the Geocoding API (which converts address to coordinates or the other way around) so if you're importing many locations - it can take quite a long time, so be patient and don't reload the page. Also, Geocoding API has a limit of 2500 requests per day.
