Mapping ID's In Console
Every time you import a unique CSV file format into Console, EverTrue generates an associated mapping ID for that format. The mapping ID can be found in the upper-left corner of an import, either during the mapping process or post-processing on the review screen.
Mapping IDs are based on the format of your file, i.e. your CSV’s column headers. For every new file format EverTrue recognizes, we will automatically generate a new associated mapping ID. This mapping ID is the link between your file format and the mapping you put in place during an import into EverTrue’s Console. For various reasons, you may have multiple mapping IDs. As an example, you’ll have one for your constituent file and another for your interaction file since they are different formats.
Any time a new file format is recognized, whether it is an updated format for a current file or a new file entirely, a new mapping ID will be generated for use. File format changes include anything from column order to changes in capitalization, periods, spaces, or dashes in the column headers.
If you’re attempting to import a file that already has an associated mapping ID, EverTrue will be able to recall that ID and use the associated mapping to auto-map your data fields. This means that for every import of a recognized file you don’t have to re-map your fields - hoory! But just remember, if you’ve made any changes to a previously imported file in terms of its formatting, you will have to re-map the file because it has generated a new mapping ID.
