We have created a custom field as a pre-defined List of Choices for "Venues" in our events calendar, and I am trying to populate that field to include the Venue name, Venue address, Web site, Phone, etc).

I have over a thousand venues (and the associated information) in a CSV to get uploaded. The Edit Custom Field/Multiple Values CSV form for uploading the custom field names (in this case venue names), and can upload those in a batch, but only the Venue name. Is there any way to batch upload a CSV for the rest of the data behind the Venue name?

Here is an example of my CSV data:
 

Address: 3rd Street Live,1204 3rd St SE,Cedar Rapids,IA
 
Venue Name: Abbey Hotel
Venue Address: 1401 Central Ave, Bettendorf, IA
 
Venue Name: Abbey Station
Venue Address: 3031 5th Ave, Rock Island, IL

 

 

Trumba offers Custom Objects (an add-on) that will allow you to accomplish this by creating a Directory Listing. Here are a few help topics that you can review to see if Custom Objects may work for you.
