This tool can help you to import your data from an Excel file into an existing SharePoint list.
1. You can find a button "Import from Excel" in the ribbon of your SharePoint list. This button can lead you to the add-in page.
2. You can drag an Excel file into a certain area on this page, or you can just select your file with a file input button on this page.
3. After you selected one file, you may need to choose one Sheet if there are multiple Sheets in your excel file.
4. Columns Mapping. After the sheet was selected, you need to specify a mapping between the columns of Excel file and fields from SharePoint list.
5. If the first line is title, please make sure you checked the checkbox "My excel has header". By checked it, the first line of data will not be considered as data.
6. After everything is settled, you can click "Start Import" to start importing.
7. You can see a progress bar when importing is in progress.
8. After importing is finished, you can see a button called "Revert". This button can help you to delete the items you just imported.
