Once we have our Parts in UpKeep, we can also use our Update Feature to make mass updates to our Parts. So if you need to bulk update the current quantity of your parts in inventory or other changes, you can do that with this feature!

NOTE: The CSV template used to update your parts is different depending on how you need to update. Review below before making changes : )

Please Note** File size is limited to 10MB and names MUST be unique.

How to Update your Parts via the NEW way

If your parts do not have similar names or they have a unique naming convention and you see the new Import screen, proceed below.

Before we get started we will need to download your current parts first.

Here is where you do this on the NEW import screen
