uploading data via Cvent template

  • 1.  uploading data via Cvent template

    Posted 7 days ago
    sample of csv to upload for data.
    Above is the template that I downloaded from Cvent for entering data and then obviously uploading to our event.  The event is actually a series of classes/sessions.

    We already have created ALL the sessions, with all the data, setup etc except for a few things I want to modify.
    If you look towards the end of the grid, there are custom fields, Zoom Link, BOX link, the other two not as important. My question is this, if I populate the corresponding data(Orange being the required items per the document template from Cvent) with the session's name, type, startdate time, and end date time, and then finally the Links(zoom and box) will Cvent be smart and not allow duplicates or will it add these sessions, times etc thus creating duplicates?  The idea, hopefully to see here, is to link the links to their respective sessions.

    Help!

    Hi Sean,

    I hope you are well and staying safe during these times! You will be glad to hear you are able to use a Session Import to simply update your existing Sessions and not allow for duplicates. In order to do so, you need to include the Session Identifier (ID) field within your Excel File, which acts as the Session's unique identifier. This will populate for you once you export your Sessions through Event Details > Sessions > Select all > Actions drop-down > Export.

    Once you export, you can combine the new fields and the Session ID field into one clean Excel file. Then, return to Cvent to complete the Session Import process. Here is a great article walking through the steps, as well: Importing Sessions

    Best,

    Hi Danni,

    Can links be added in Flex?  If not, when will we have that ability?

    Thanks!

    Hi Loretta,

    There is not a default "hyperlink" button within the Session Description field, however we have found that if you simply copy and paste the full link containing HTTPS it will render correctly on your website.

    Always worth testing this out to ensure you have copied it in full.

    Best,

    Danni

    HI Danni,

    Thank you for your reply.  I apologize I wasn't clear.  Can links be added in the import?  I noticed the columns in Sean's snip.

    thanks!
