Import - update or add to existing data was created by planetholst
I would like to be able to make a subsequent import which updates data already in the app (such as revised personal details) as well as creating new columns for new data which may have been received later (such as target levels). This would save having to enter this new data manually.

Hi planetholst,
You can do this with the current version, but it is a bit different than importing data for the first time.
It requires you to save the file you're trying to update the class with into your Dropbox account Apps/iDoceo folder first. Then, from iDoceo, tap&hold on a class, and import.

On the other hand, this very same week, there'll be a huge update for iDoceo, its version 3.0, which will remove this unnecessary extra steps, and will directly offer the option to 'Append data' or 'Create new class' when you try to import a CSV or XLS file.
