user defined values on import of leads

on 9/21/13, 11:55 PM 1,133 views

Hi guys

I am preparing the import of 1000 leads for a marketing campaign. I have a specialised team for this campaign and have created it in OpenERP. Now my test export gives me the following:

section_id/id __export__.crm_lead_2_3 crm.section_sales_department

This is the output of two example records. The top one has my dedicated sales team for this campaign, the bottom the default sales department OE comes with. This gives m,e absolutely no clue on how to do a correct import. I'll poke around in the db next, but sorry guys, this is abysmal :(

This is a bug.


Once you fix the bug, your export will make much more sense - it will be the id of the matching team (so you will also need to export your teams to see which they related to).

Also, check out the documentation on the import screen - you can export (and then import) human readable fields instead of the ID fields.
