WHAT COLUMNS ARE MANDATORY?


Item (A) and Category (B) are the only mandatory columns in the attire importer template.


WHAT DO I PUT FOR CATEGORY?


Attire category in Cut Time is just another broad way of sorting your items.  Most people will refer to the name of the group the clothing is being used for as the category, such as “Marching Band,” or “Concert Ensemble.”  The item column (A) is the specific term for the item like “Concert Dress,” or “Cummerbund.”


WHAT DO I DO WITH ASSIGNMENT COLUMNS (P-Q)?


Use the attire assignment columns when you are importing attire items that are already signed out to members in your group.  The names of people being assigned attire inventory must already exist in your account in order for the assignment to be made.  Assigned Date (Q) is the day that you signed out the attire, and if not filled in will default to the day we upload your import file.

IMPORTANT: The name in column P “Assigned To” must match the spelling of the name on the person’s profile in your account.


HOW DO I USE INVENTORY REPAIR HISTORY COLUMNS (R-W)?


Attire repair history works the same way as inventory repair history.  Only one repair history line can be imported per item, and you may use these columns to import open repair requests or to import a historical repair record.


Make sure there is a “Y” under Repair History (R).  The name in Repair Requested By (S) must match someone in your Cut Time account to link to them.  Leave Date Repaired (V) blank to indicate a repair that still needs to be made, or fill it in with a date to indicate historical repair data.
