I see the feature to delete a constituent attribute, but I am trying to delete an education attribute and I don't see that remove feature, does it exist and I am missing it?
At this time, ImportOmatic only has the ability to remove constituent attributes. We do have a popular UserVoice suggestion for removing data that I would recommend you vote on.
Although, you could likely use the IOM API to remove the attribute. If you have a resource that can program in either Microsoft VB.Net or C#
then they would be able to write this for you. If you do not have such a resource, we can provide this customization as a service.
Please let me know if you have any other questions.
Yes, we've recently added the ability to remove attributes using ImportOmatic.
First you will have the attribute description in your data file. Map that attribute as you normally would if you were importing it. You will also have a column in your data file with a value of Remove. This is mapped to Record Type = Constituent Attribute - Remove and Value Type = associate with the attribute you wish to remove.
Please let me know if you have any questions about mapping attributes!
Thanks for the reply , I'm confused about the value that should go in the remove field , Is it something like (DELETE or REMOVE). I tried the method you told but had no luck.
