Bulk Data Upload

Hello Everyone

  • I want to ask, is it possible to upload bulk data into commcare without caseids?
  • If it’s possible, how it is done.
  • We have collected data and put it in a excel spreadsheet, instead of individually entering the data using web app or mobile app. we wanted to upload the data in bulk but they they have caseids. Please help?

Hi Kitso,

You can upload data into HQ with the Excel Import Tool.

You shouldn’t need to define case ID’s for your cases unless you are changing existing cases, instead of creating new ones.

If you need to update existing cases, you can use the Case Exporter to get access to the case ID’s and other details of the cases in the system to prepare them for import.


Thank you Clayton, I am creating new ones. Thank you for the reply, it will help
