About the improved excel import
The import of Excel documents to inriver has been updated with new functionality and performance improvements. The goal of the improvements is to speed up the import process, provide control over the import process, as well as provide visibility into the import process.
Features included in the improved process include:
- Data validation and imports occurring in a long running job so user can continue to work and speed performance
- Results of the import downloadable in an Excel sheet with robust error messaging
- Control of steps run in the import process, for example, Server extensions being invoked, Listener extensions being invoked, Validation only, Import only, Post processing (completeness, save revision history, channel notification etc.)
- Reviewing of import status as it occurs
