Failed to build preview, please check your file matches the template

This message appears when Nexudus can't recognize the structure of your file. 




If you receive this message, some causes can be:

  • You uploaded your file from the wrong tab on the Imports page
    Double check you are in the right tab on the Imports page before you try to upload your file again. For example, if you're trying to upload an opportunities import template, make sure you're on the opportunities tab on the Imports page.
  • You removed or edited a column header on the import template
    Download a blank import template file and compare it to your edited import template. The column names on row 1 of both files should be identical. If they aren't, change your edited import template to match the blank import template. 
  • You didn't fill out a required column
    Compare the dummy data of your blank import template with your edited import template. Columns that are required always have dummy data. Optional columns are left blank.
