This article contains the following sections:


Adding New Columns

  2. Add custom field names to the file as new columns.
  3. Name column headings using the same name as the corresponding custom field name. 
  4. Fill in the appropriate information in the new custom field data column for each person.
  5. If you wish to import Skills data, to import/display a list of skills, use the Field Type tag when prompted. 
  6. In each cell of the Skills column, if there is more than one skill, separate each skill by a colon.


  7. Save and close the CSV/Excel file.
