Within UpKeep, you can maintain your entire inventory so you know exactly where things are. You can also use our barcode scanner for simple and easy access from a mobile device. You can set a minimum quantity for your parts. So when the quantity of a part dips below that minimum, you’ll be able to tell those parts are running low!

If your team already has a record of your parts, you can import them into UpKeep using our CSV template! We can also download our current list of parts, make updates, and re-import the information to update it.

NOTE: The CSV template to Update your parts is different from the one used to import new parts. Click here for more information on updating your parts!

How to Import Parts

NOTE: You can only import a maximum of 1000 parts in each individual CSV at a time, but there is no limit to the total number of parts in your UpKeep account!

  1. Download Parts Data ImportSheet (or check out the GIF below)
  2. Open the CSV in Excel/Google Sheets
  3. Do not add, remove or change any headers in Row 1
  4. Add in your data beginning with Row 2
  5. To add in custom fields, see the next section.*
  6. Save the CSV file
  7. Upload the CSV under the Parts tab > Import > Import your File

Here is a GIF of where you can find the CSV and upload it:

*Need to add a custom field?

  1. You can add custom additional properties to your locations beginning in Column P.
  2. Title a new column CUSTOM|(new field name/additional property).
    For example: CUSTOM|GPS #
  3. Add in your custom values in the rows below.


NOTE: The ID refers to a unique, UpKeep assigned ID. You can find each 10-character ID in the URL when clicking into the location/asset/part/etc. All IDs can also be found when exporting each data set in Column A of the CSV!
