(you can open/edit/save CSV files with Excel)

A couple notes about your file:

  • All fields must be separated into their own columns.  For example, it won't work if the first and last names are joined in one column.
  • The header row names do not need to be spelled exactly the same as the template.  When uploading you will map your columns to the corresponding fields in MonitorBase. 
  • Your columns are not required to be in the exact same order as the template.  As long as they in there, you are good to go!
  • As always, if you need assistance, email support@monitorbase.com but please don't email us a list of contacts, email is not as secure as uploading directly into your account.
