You can upload this data into Assignar

To make this process more efficient, you can tap Upload from file and upload this data into Assignar. Alternatively, you can manually type in this information too.



Map your uploaded data to the Assignar data types

Just think of this as moving the data from an external 'bucket' into the right Assignar 'bucket'. Once everything is correctly mapped, tap Review to preview your work before commiting. 

Here, the system is asking you to confirm the names within the column headers. If everything looks good, select YES.



Here, the system is asking you to confirm mappings. Use the green buttons to confirm all of your data is moving into the right buckets going forward.



If there are any issues, we'll highlight them in red and give you the chance to fix them.

Data immediately flagged in red are improperly formatted or have missing data. Correct any issues in your data.



Once all your issues are corrected, tap Continue and your data will be uploaded. Success!

To see your new Equipment, go to the Equipment page (or Assets page) on our Assignar Web App.
