Please take the time to read each article before using the data importer as the tools may have changed since you last used them.

If you have never used any of the tools before, we recommend contacting the onboarding team to request training on the onboarding process to ensure you have the knowledge to use the tools effectively. Incorrect use of the older tools can lead to data loss and corruption.
