Why compare your import spreadsheet to the sample import file?

We think it's helpful to look at a sample file as you prepare your import spreadsheet. Though data comes in all shapes and sizes and it wouldn't be possible for a single template to work for everyone who imports data into LGL, the sample file gives you a reference point for how to form your columns and what data should go in them. It also includes helpful notes that share how to handle certain field types.

Note: This file is not meant to be uploaded into your account as is. The purpose of the sample file is to give you ideas for how various import files might look in terms of column headers and the types of values you would import in each column.
