Importing Historical Jobs Into Tradify

In Tradify, you're able to import historical Jobs. However, only the Job header information can be imported (this header information covers basic Job details).

Details like costs, labour, images, scheduled appointments, adding staff members & invoices will all need to be captured manually once the job has been imported & created.


How to Format Your Historical Jobs for Importing

Tradify requires a CSV format file (Comma Separated Values). For ease of use, please use the template supplied below.

Job Template File

Not all fields on the import template are required. Also, there are others that have certain rules to adhere to. 

If you’re unsure at all, please use the table below as a reference.
