Importing Services

This feature has to be turned on by FotoNotes. Please contact

1. Before importing your services ensure you have prepared your service import CSV file using the service spreadsheet guide here. The first row is the header and must have all of these columns. The 2nd row and below will contain your data. You can also update service data with an import. If a service exists with the service key specified in the import file, it will update the service data.  

  • The columns can be in any order but the first row must use these exact key names
  • The only required columns are: NAME, KEY, and UNIT
  • Costs should be decimal or whole numbers without commas or dollar signs:  1.25, 0.00, 40 
  • If costs are not specified, they will default to zero
  • Booleans (can_set_cost, can_set_quantity) should be either true or false.  If omitted, they default to true
