Import your clients’ spreadsheets into Nutrium

We know that your clients' information is the most valuable data you possess. After all, it is with that information that you are able to assess their dietary profile and needs.

Nutrium nutrition software is an amazing tool for you to streamline your work, get organised and store your clients' information in a secure and GDPR compliant platform. That is we have developed a new feature to help you set up all your work in the software, stress-free.

Now you can import all your existing spreadsheets (Excel, CSV, TSV) with your clients' data in Nutrium with a few clicks.

Importing the data

Spreadsheets seem like a great solution when you are considering where to store your client's data, at the beginning. But as your business grows and follow-up increases you'll start noticing that spreadsheets can get messy, confusing and a lot of data can be lost, as it is not the most secure place to store it.

Even though Nutrium seems like the best solution for your business, migrating all your existing data to the software, manually can be really time-consuming.

As we do not want that to be the issue, now you can import all that information stored in an Excell, CSV or TSV file to Nutrium with a few clicks.

How to import the data

The whole process is quite easy, and Nutrium will guide you and offer you all the information you need.

Adapting your spreadsheet, CSV or TSV to import

The information must be organised by columns, and each column must be associated with a category.

These are the mandatory fields to be included: name, gender, birthdate and email address.

Importing the file

Click on the left side menu Patients, and in the patient import icon.

Choose the file you want to add from your computer.

Associate the file columns/headings to the fields available in Nutrium

After uploading the file, it's time to map the existing data of your clients in Nutrium.

In some cases, like in measurements, you need to also set which is the measuring unit you want to add.

Lastly, the system will start importing the data and as soon as it is complete you will be notified by email.

Please note that, for each new or updated client in each report, a tag with the date will be associated with their profile so you can quickly.

Got an error in your import report? Here's what to do

Don't be alarmed if you get a notification that your import had an error (or more than one) that need to be corrected, such as:

  • Data format not recognised;
  • Invalid or repeated email address;
  • Invalid or repeated phone number, etc.;

First, you need to correct the data in your existing file and then repeat the import. Our team is also available to help and assist you with the next steps.

Import History

In the same section where you select the import, you can also check the history of all your previous import as well as a detailed report. In there you can check how many clients were added or updated and what were the errors.

To access the report, you just need to click in Import History.

In here you are able to check a detailed report of all your imports and, in what line of your document you can find it so you can quickly correct this on your file.
