How do I map spreadsheet column names to Airtable columns/fields?

Use the EasyCSV feature: "Field Mappings". You will find it at the top of your sheet import page if you are logged into EasyCSV and are the admin.

For each Airtable column/field you want populated create a new field mapping.

Select the column value you want pushed into a specific Airtable column/field.

How do I update existing records instead of always adding records as new data?

  1. Once you create your import page for Airtable enter in your Airtable info and save.
  2. Go to the Import Flow and scroll to the bottom for the Airtable destination options.
  3. Click into the option for Creating/Updating Records when importing
  4. Scroll down to find the radio buttons labeled: Do you want to check if a record exists before creating a new one?
  5. For "Field to search by" choose the column from your Airtable view that holds the value you want to use as the lookup.
  6. For "Spreadsheet column or Virtual Field with search value" choose the column or EasyCSV Virtual Fielf you created you want to use for checking if the value exists in the lookup field in Airtable.
  7. Make sure the checkbox for "Update matched records with spreadsheet data being imported" is checked.
  8. Click the "Save" button.
  9. Now you can import and matched records will update all fields you submit and new rows will be added as new records in Airtable (if that checkbox was left checked in Sheet Details).
