batch imports

Postby Jorgismo » Wed Aug 03, 2016 7:12 am

not sure if this is where to ask this, but ive been trying to keep up adding episodes to the links bellow, but they are 5 days a week and everyday. it takes forever to add them in one at a time. is there any way to turn in a csv or excel file with episode number, date and air date to have them batch imported instead of going one by one in the edit section?

I'm looking for this functionality as well, but for The Price Is Right

It's something we've talked about doing with our new site. Although it also gives the potential for people to mess up records really quickly so it's unlikely it'll ever be a user feature. Once we're up and running with the new site we may have it as a mod feature which means users could use it indirectly by providing files for mods to check and then upload or possibly allow them to upload it but require mod approval to go live.

For now, no it's not something we support.
Please don't PM me. Post in the forums instead unless there is a very good reason for a PM or I won't respond.

I know series mods are under consideration, what are your thoughts about enabling this for them, were it to be supported?

I have lots of info on late night shows but it would take way too long to add it one at a time. Maybe a bulk update view that shows the fields for X number of episodes in a big table?
