What structure does the CSV file need?

The CSV file requires the next columns:

User (ID, username or email) | Points | Points Type (slug) | Log Description (Optional)

The tool includes a CSV template file that you can download directly from the box “Points CSV Import\Export” located at WP Admin area -> GamiPress -> Tools -> Import/Export tab.

An example of a CSV file:

"User (ID, username or email)","Points","Points Type (slug)","Log Description (Optional)"
"1","100","credits","100 credits awarded through the user's ID"
"admin","1000","coins","1,000 coins awarded through the user's username"
"contact@gamipress.com","50","gems","50 gems awarded through the user's email"

Note: To prevent any issue with commas (,) is recommended to encapsulate each column with double quotation marks (“). Commonly, CSV editors like Google Sheets or Excel automatically detects columns with commas and apply directly the double quotation marks.
