Importing a series of accession numbers to create a set

Today, I was working on bulk editing storage locations for some of the items and, after looking at the documentation, I noticed that the data importer template has an option for "set_items." Which sounds like if I have a list of id/accession numbers in a spreadsheet, I can quickly create a set to work with. However, I am not sure how to the mapping would work; I have done the usual part of looking at the metadata elements, but the method is not clicking in my head. Does anyone have an example of how to use the data importer to create and then fill a set with records?


  • No there's no support for that. Where are you seeing this exactly?

  • Good to know. I inferred it the program was able to import a list to create a set so because the link of basic table elements lists sets and set_items. In addition, the data importer template created in Google Drive give the option for these two tables for both "set" and "set_items" tables.
