Upload Devices and/or Data


Mass import devices/data from a CSV

The upload option () allows en masse import of devices and/or field data, and allows you to specify additional import actions.


You would use this option any time you need to create a lot of placeholders at once or if you need to update data fields for a large number of devices.  For instance, if my asset management system had given me data in a csv linking device serial number to a physical asset tag number, then I might use this tool to upload that asset tag information into FileWave.

  6. In Actions, define other options
