Mapping IDs 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 the post-processing review screen.

Generated mapping IDs are based on the format of your file, e.g. your .csv's column headers. For every new file format EverTrue recognizes, we will automatically create a new associated mapping ID. This ID is the link between your file format and the mapping you put in place during an import into EverTrue’s Console.

You may find you have multiple mapping IDs! For example, if you are importing both constituent and interaction files into Console, you will have two distinct IDs as these files do not use the same format. 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 are attempting to import a file that already has an associated mapping ID, EverTrue will recall that ID and use the associated mapping to auto-map your data fields. This means you won't have to re-map your fields for imports of recognized files—hooray! But remember, if you make any formatting changes to a previously imported file, you will need to re-map the file as it will be associated with a newly-generated mapping ID.
