Bulk upload

I think it would be useful to have the possibility to upload several locations to the map-app.

    Friends, now you can add locations in bulk via CSV! 🔥

    Since this Wishlist portal moved to our community, you will find all the details (important ones!) here.

    The CSV template seems to be pretty rigid and doesn't allow us to import raw data that is similarly sorted from another CSV file into the app.

    Rearranging the raw data from our CSV file to your accepted template is the same workload that to upload location individually.

    Our CSV raw data from our different distribution partners is always sorted as the following in individual cells: Client's name/address/city/zip code.

    Yet I can't import that, is there a reason ?

    Thank you,

    Is it possible to export locations from 3 existing Elfsight maps into 1 larger map (also in Elfsight)? In other words, we want to export from 3 smaller regional maps into 1 master map of ALL locations. All 3 smaller maps are already setup in Elfsight. Can that be done?

    Hi Jon, my apologies for the late reply!

    Our Wishlist portal has moved to our forum, so we post all the details and updates there now.

    I'm really sorry that it's taking that long, but we're still working in the Bulk upload feature. Feel free to vote for this feature and follow the updates here: https://community.elfsight.com/t/bulk-upload/7012.

    I do believe we will be able to release this option since we realize what a huge drawback our Google Maps app has now.

    Thank you very much for your comment!

    Hi, is there any news on this? Surely the Dev team have an idea of release date by now!?

    Dear Jim,

    I totally understand how painful your experience has been, and I cannot express how sorry I am!

    As much as I'd love to set an ETA, I'm afraid it's difficult for our dev team to figure out the approximate release date. What I can say for sure is that Bulk Upload option is the task of high priority, and we do our best to get back to its development.

    We'll make sure to keep you in the loop here 🙏🏻

    Dear folks,

    Thank you for all your comments!

    We're truly sorry that we have to keep you waiting for this needed and long-awaited functionality to be eventually available.

    The good news is that this option was added to the pipeline and our dev team will surely include it in one of the updates within this year.

    We wish we could be more efficient in this matter and had more resources to release your ideas (predominantly really smart and reasonable, we cannot but admit it) much more promptly.

    We'll make every effort to pay this idea special attention, as we totally realize all the inconvenience you have to encounter every time you need to add locations manually.

    Once again, a huge thank you for your patience and for sticking with us! 🙏🏻

    Yes, need this! Any idea when it will be available? It's a factor in my consideration to use elfsight or not...

    Yes, please do this. Allowing a CSV upload would do the trick.

    Please add this! I'm trying to add in 200+ locations with data and this would be such a great feature to have instead of manually entering all that info!

    Please forget trying to develop UI yourself as this is taking too long. Allow the upload of a CSV file and use the data from that. Specify the format for the geolocation field, and the rest is just display detail. Can add metadata (eg marker type) if required.

    it is very helpful if you give provision to upload addresses in Google Maps through google sheet and also allow to maintain sub catagory.

    CSV or TXT is fine. Don't waste time trying to build out your own data management controls and UI. Excel already has all the tools

    Helga, et. al.

    Please, just a CSV upload of the relevant data. It's just a database on the back end, isn't it? In fact, instead of just upload, it would be nice to sync with a CSV. That way, stores that no longer are relevant drop off without having to manually delete them.

    Hello Helga and team

    To your question - Do you need to edit a widget via the file itself (meaning that you'll have to upload all the changes via this file), or you'd like to do it in the widget's editor itself?

    We like to use your widgets more extensively but without an import function, the manual entry is not a solution to situations like,

    1. Store locations ��� we have over 200 stores. Cannot manually import them and update them one by one using your widget
    2. Pdf embed ��� we are using your widget for pdf embed that include 1-3 files. Uploading each pdf bit by bit, typing in headings manually are painful
    3. Image gallery ��� again, cannot import one image at all, add title etc. Too slow. We may have 10 or 20 photos per gallery. Adding link manually is painful

    A shopify integration to pull product page links will be such a marvellous improvement ����

    Dear folks,

    Thank you ever so much for all your comments and ideas provided!

    We're terribly sorry for such a long silence regarding this feature update. Unfortunately, this feature appeared to be not that easy as we expected, and we see that it requires a widget's major re-configuration.

    Since we understand clearly that this option is crucial, we see that we have to speed up the process.

    This way, we have a big question for you guys:

    Do you need to edit a widget via the file itself (meaning that you'll have to upload all the changes via this file), or you'd like to do it in the widget's editor itself?

    Thank you so much for your comments in advance!
