Importing From Spreadsheets

While you can certainly create your entire database from scratch in the ARDI interface, larger systems may benefit by being set up using the spreadsheet import.

This allows you to collect data from your existing information systems to make initial setup significantly faster.

The following elements can be imported…

Relationships, Properties, Types, Templates and Assets can all be imported using this blank spreadsheet file.

You can edit this file either in Microsoft Excel or in compatible software, such as the free OpenOffice Calc package.

Data Bindings are imported from a plain CSV file, which you can also create from Excel / OpenOffice.

Media is imported using a ZIP file of all of the relevant documents and images.
