Import Excel and Sub-Items

Hi!
Is it possible to insert sub-items through an import from Excel?

Hi @AleRun :wave:

Unfortunately the import doesn’t currently allow for directly importing into subitems.
You could import all of your data as main level items and then manually convert the subitems after import.

You can do this from the menu next to the item name:

Could that work for you instead?

I hope this helps! Remember to mark as solved if this answers your question :smile:

I’m curious, did you try this? Did it work? I’m working on something similar as well

Thank you for your suggestion.

I haven’t tried the functionality but I understand that with this method I should do an import and conversion for each main item to associate its own sub items.

Hi. This suggestion is not useful if our sub-item column headings are different to the main level (which mine are!!) Is this option going to be available any time soon? Thanks

@Dani, exactly what Sara said. Any way this can be a feature that can be added to the subitem roadmap Subitems Product Plan ?

Hey there @sara.light & @michelle.casanova :wave:

You’re correct that if the structure of the subitems differs from that of the main level items, this wouldn’t be successful as a workaround.

I can definitely appreciate how this would be a useful addition to the platform for yourself, and I’m sure for other teams too, so I would highly recommend opening a thread in our Feature Request section.
Here other users who would also like this added to the platform will be able to upvote the feature!
You can find this here: Feature feedback - monday Community

Our roadmaps and development schedules are ultimately decided by our product teams and are subject to change. That said, we do try our best to take into account which features are most in demand by our users and prioritise accordingly. Creating a feature request is a great way for our developers to gauge the demand for this feature!

Best,
Dani

@Dani I have already started a thread of my own. How many people need to post on this to get it in the roadmap?

Hi @michelle.casanova!

I’m afraid there isn’t a specific threshold or number to get this added to the roadmap.
Our roadmaps are decided by the relevant product team based on a number of different factors, including demand from users.
Our teams do review the feature feedback and we really value our users requests and do our best to add these to roadmaps alongside planned new development.
Ultimately our roadmaps are highly subject to change, but I do want to assure you that the team are aware and we are always trying to optimize the platform to suit our users needs.
