Resolution

Once you select a Roambi view, you will be taken to the Import Your Data page. You will be given the option to choose the location of your data source file.

  • Upload. Click this button to import a file using your operating system's file wizard. This button is only available when you are using a PC or Mac. It is not visible when using the iPad. For this lesson, click this button.
  • Library. Click this button to import a file stored in the hosted Roambi Library. Your data source files must be added to the library prior to starting this procedure.
  • Box. Click this button to import a file from Box. You will be prompted to authenticate with box.com if this is the first time you are connecting to Box in Roambi Business.
  • Import Sample. Click this button to use the sample excel file we provide for each view.

Once you select a data source file, Roambi Business will begin the importing process. A progress indicator reveals the status of the import process. Once the upload is complete, you will be given the option to review the data import by clicking "Edit Range" or proceed with customizing the report via "Complete Import".
