The time has arrived! We’re so excited to share with you the SimpleImport Winter ‘22 (20211129) Release!
With an optimized workflow, updated error messages, a nifty feature addition and a new summary page, there’s plenty to cover so let’s get started.
1. Define your Import Type
Firstly… ambiguous toggles are gone from the mapping page! SimpleImport now has a dedicated page for defining your Import Type; choose between an Insert, Update or Upsert. A new quick-to-adopt Matching Conditions query builder finds existing records when you are configuring an Update or Upsert job.
2. A mapping page, just for mapping fields!
Thanks to the dedicated Import Type page we’ve just seen, the mapping page now focuses on its key objective – mapping fields! It’s simpler than ever to map your spreadsheet columns to Salesforce fields, and the field finder has been revamped to be faster and more accurate than before.
3. Harness the power of Constant values
Are you importing products and want them all to be active? Or inserting new US accounts? Introducing Constant values. Don’t waste time duplicating data in your spreadsheet; tackle it directly on the mapping page. Hit Add Constant, map the value, and away you go!
4. Clearer error messages
Sometimes errors happen and we’ve been working hard to make our messaging as clear as possible so that you can identify the issues and work on solving them. Perhaps something is misconfigured, or required fields are missing? SimpleImport will let you know!
5. Review your import settings
Importing can be stressful so we’ve introduced a new summary page to provide an overview of the import job you’re about to submit. See your object selections, matching conditions, mapped fields and review the job estimation all in one place. Sound good? Well you can save the mapping here for future use!
6. Load and save mappings where it matters
Load mappings at the beginning of your journey, and save new ones at the end. With the import process now spread out over a couple of steps, loading a mapping at the earliest point allows you to blitz through your import task. Save a new mapping at the end of the process ensures you’ve followed all the required steps to set up your mapping how you need it.
How do I access SimpleImport Winter ’22?
Great question! This is a service update so you will automatically have access to the new workflow if you are already using SimpleImport Premium.
There are some additional tweaks and changes including removing the requirement to create a custom setting when configuring the ManagedImport Lightning Component. All old mappings will still work as expected. To accompany these changes, we’ve overhauled our documentation to make the transition and future adoption of the solution better than ever.
