Issues mapping data? Please check:

  • Your data is in a tabulated format, such as an Excel or Google spreadsheet.
  • The first row of your spreadsheet should contain column names such as Name, City, State, etc.
  • Please see our document on setting up a spreadsheet template as a visual reference.
  • Selectors under the 'Match & Display Options' button are set properly.
