Import/Export

Import

It is inconvenient to manually add a large number of business listings at once to a fresh installation of GoClixy. Inserting categories, locations and listings one by one will take a long time especially when you have hundreds or thousands of such information. In such situations, you need a solution to automatically add all those listings to your Online Business Directory.

To view all the existing imports and their status, go to Settings->Import/Export->Importer

Click the file name under the File Name column to download.

To delete existing imported file, select the file by marking the checkbox to the left of the Data Imported column and click the Delete button.

Note: For security reasons, it is the best practice to delete all existing imported files.
