Uploading Data from a CSV File

  • Updated


If the data you want Sisu to use exists in a spreadsheet or CSV file, you can upload it directly to Sisu. 

If you later need to update the data with a new spreadsheet or CSV, you can simply re-upload the CSV:

  • The existing data in the CSV will not be affected
  • New data will be added in the form of a new CSV

Troubleshooting File Uploads

If you receive an error message, please check the following:

  • Ensure that the file is a UTF-8 encoded CSV file. 
  • Ensure that the file is less than 500MB.
  • Check for improperly escaped characters.
  • Check for missing delimiters.

If you continue to receive an error message, open the file in MS Excel to examine the file and then save it as a CSV UTF-8 file type.
