Import Features From a Spreadsheet

Chisel lets you easily import your data into Chisel by using the CSV import tool by following simple steps.


To get started, you will need the following:

Note: A Chisel account with contributor access can’t proceed with any integration process. Learn more about the Chisel user roles.

Access CSV Import Button

  • To get started, click on ‘Integrations’ under the ‘workspace‘ pillar on the left navigation bar.
  • Once you click on ‘Integrations,’ you will see a screen that shows you all the integrations you have set up(active integrations) and other integrations you can set up.
  • Scroll down and click on the Import button corresponding to the CSV Import option.
  • Here you’ll have to select multiple options before importing your data into Chisel. Let’s go through each of them below:

Upload CSV File

  • First, upload a CSV(Comma Separated Values) File. Click on Choose File and select the file from your computer that contains the feature data you wish to import.

Pro tip: The CSV import tool only needs to be used once per CSV.

Mapping CSV Columns With Chisel’s Feature Columns

  • Once you have uploaded the CSV file, a list of options related to your features will be displayed.
  • The CSV import tool supports five different fields: “Feature Title” and “Feature Description,” “Feature Label,” “Feature Status,” and “Feature Release.
  • In the ‘Mapping’ section, match your respective CSV column with Chisel’s respective feature columns.

One-time Import

  • ‘Select the Component’ you want to import your features in, in the ‘One-time Import’ option.
  • Scroll down till the end to get a ‘Live Preview’ of what the imported features will look like in Chisel. 

Note: This live preview only shows the top/first 15 rows of the selected CSV file.

  • Once you check the Live preview and are ready to import the features, simply click on the Import Features button in the ‘One-time Import’ section.
