In addition to entering any and all information through our online dashboard, you may quickly and easily bulk upload information into our system. We have included all formats in one Microsoft Excel spreadsheet example

Things to Note

Separate spreadsheets ✓

Save your resources (agenda, exhibitors, speakers ect.) as separate spreadsheets. For simplicity we've included multiple resources on our example spreadsheet but when spreadsheets are uploaded it will done so one resource at a time.

Make sure your spreadsheet has data beginning in first column and the first row. There should be no cells above or to the left of your spreadsheet data.

Match spreadsheet headings exactly ✓

Be sure you are using Gather Digital's terminology for all of your spreadsheet uploads. Refer to the example spreadsheet and copy and paste headings to ensure you are using the exact same heading labels. For example use the heading of "Name" and not "Session Name" for the column containing session titles. Do not copy the example spreadsheet labels denoting the different resources. The rows beginning with the text such as "AGENDA FORMAT EXAMPLE" or "SPEAKER FORMAT EXAMPLE" should be omitted.

Delete ✓ not hide

For columns containing data you will not be using, please delete the column. Do not hide it! Hiding the column may cause unintended data to be imported or uploads to fail. Hidden columns can create headaches when importing, so pare your spreadsheet down to just the information that you need.

Remove any extra cells ✓

After you feel you've got all of your data entered into you spreadsheet do a final review. Scroll to the right and make sure there isn't unnecessary data past what should be your last column. Scroll to the botom as well and ensure that their is no unintended information entered in a row below the scope of your spreadsheet.
