    Should tags be separated by comma, colon, pipe in a csv file?

    Saw that, but it doesn’t explain how tags should be imported.

    Tags are imported the same way as every other field.  Here is documentation of the filed header  names etc. It indicates Power add-on but also applies to current versions of ProPack… the field header is tags, if you are importing a file first , convert to *csv file format

    *comma separated value.

    My question piggybacks on this one — I’m working with Matt.  The documentation shows one field header “sl_tags”.  If there are multiple tags for a location, should there then be multiple field headers that read “sl_tags” so that the import can recognize all those fields as tag fields?  Your documentation example shows just one sl_tags field and one tag living inside that field (“restaurant”).  What if something needs to show “grocery, bags, single serve”

    Hi Maya, Yes you can import more than one tag per location, as mentioned they are separated by commas. Here is an example of an import file. I used Google Sheets and saved as CSV. As you can see, some of my examples show both restaurant,hotel on one line.

    And this is how it looks on the UI admin after I imported, the Vendue Inn was a new location I added that I have tags both restaurant,hotel.

    Please note, I have Premier installed on my test site, so if you only have ProPack you will not see the pretty picture of the map for the location on the BACK end UI.

    Also shown is the front end with dropdown, or text input, show locations at start as one example and  don’tt show locations until search, etc…there are a plethora of settings available depending on what add-ons you have installed.
