It’s easier to request imports into TroopTrack! Start by going to Support>Spreadsheet Import/Export. This is a new, somewhat experimental, feature. If it proves useful we plan to expand on it.
First, upload your spreadsheet and specify the type of import. When you submit the request, your spreadsheet will be instantly validated. If there are any errors, the page will reload with messages of what the errors were so that you can fix your spreadsheet. If there are no errors, a new helpdesk ticket will be created with your attachement and the type of import so that we can import the file for you.
Your spreadsheet has to be in .csv format (comma-separated values).
This has been requested in the past on other threads. The calendar is not just a calendar but a way to view all of the events and they contain much more information that just date, time, and description. There are so many components to an Event it would make for a very cumbersome import and a whole lot of validation. The other importers talked about on this page have much more static data and are specific to individuals.
One way I have found to help with this task is to have my laptop at the calendar planning meeting and enter items as they are decided upon. I typically put in generic Camping Weekend or Service Project descriptions as a place holder then as we get closer to the event update with the specific data.
