I am trying to import records to a custom multi-record set of fields. I read somewhere that it was a new feature for 4.5.8 but now for the life of me I cannot find where I read it - pretty sure it was the release notes, but may have got the version wrong.

Would appreciate a pointer in the right direction. (we are currently on 4.6.4)

Many thanks

  2. Click the help ? at the end of: "The Import Wizard.... them here."
  3. Click the link on here at the end of: "If you need to import Multi-value Custom Data for contacts.... from here: /civicrm/import/custom?reset=1 .

You should see the multi-record field to import

    Thanks so much Sanjay... I would never have found it! Agree with petednz - the link to multi record import needs to be much more obvious on Civi itself – Catherine Jul 21 '15 at 10:13
