Parts: Import your parts list

Purpose: Add and update the main parts list via a CSV upload. Maintaining the part details is equally important as there are changes over time.

Please note:

  • File must be prepared correctly to meet the system requirements, refer to the related guide: Parts and prices: Preparing your parts list and supplier prices
  • Must check the correct columns are matched with the correct input type when uploading
  • Maximum 5,000 rows (individual parts) per spreadsheet
