    Hi

     

    Does the import Data App not support certain entry fields such as visual multi select widget?  I have successfully bulk imported some data using this method but the template format does not display headings for some of my form fields eg. visual multi select widget .  Is there a way around this or a multi select option that will work? 

     

    Also the app doesn't seem to work correctly on my computer in Internet Explorer (keeps asking for login and loads miniature screen).  Works fine in Google Chrome though (other than the issue mentioned above). 

     

    Thanks in advance.

    Since widgets are varied, they also store different data formats - there cannot be a single way of parsing these data. That is why unfortunately, the Import Data App cannot work on widgets.

    Also the app doesn't seem to work correctly on my computer in Internet Explorer (keeps asking for login and loads miniature screen).  Works fine in Google Chrome though (other than the issue mentioned above).

    You probably are using an old version of IE. On my end, it works well in IE 9. I think you should just upgrade your browser as the older versions of IE are very buggy, in fact a lot of big companies have stopped supporting them, e.g., Gmail.

    Hope this answers your question.

    By the way, I am opening a ticket and forward it to the developer of Import Data. He'll be the one to have a final say regarding the possibility of importing data for widgets.

    Thank you very much for your patience!
