CSV Import Utility for third party imports.

Anonymous shared this idea 6 years ago
Under Consideration

It would be great if we could have some generic import scripts for new customers / those migrating from other platforms for which a specific set of import tools doesn't already exist (Parallels' stable of billing panels for one).

If we can have a set of tools which are supported and import from a "known format" into the WHMCS system that would be great (ie bulk import tools I guess)

The ability to import clients, transactions, domains, services, etc all from csv (that way we just get the Excel / XML / etc data which we know and then don't have to mess around potentially breaking whmcs's databases importing it by hand.

Similar I guess to the way we import from a relatively known format into Sage, SugarCRM or any other database backed tool .... csv file in, agree some mappings (or as previously noted, a "known format" goes in) and the back end whmcs is updated.

Whether we're importing 5,000 domains, 500 customers or 50,000 subscriptions from "another system" ... it would be great if we didn't have to reverse engineer the whmcs database to do it.

Importing from csv file should be prio to get working should be a nice thing and do some of our work easier.

I'm still amazed that a tool like WHMCS does not support as standard, customers moving from other systems. It is very common now for customers to have existing domains, and in come case, with the new TLDs, 10, 20, 50, 100 etc domains. As a minimum WHMCS should support mass importing of existing client domains.
