Importing Content into Guru using Spreadsheets

Roles: Authors, Admins


Easily import and organize your knowledge into Guru with our Spreadsheet tool by following the steps below. See here for more on Guru's migration options.

  1. Create a spreadsheet with the following 4 columns in the same order on the first sheet:
    • Title - required
    • Content - required
    • Boards - comma separated
    • Tags - comma separated

Please NOTE:

  • DO NOT include "#" in the tag name(s), as it is added automatically upon import
  • The exact order of the columns must be followed, click here for an example.
  • The spreadsheet can have NO ADDITIONAL COLUMNS besides the 4 required
  • A Card's content must live across 1 row in the spreadsheet. Do NOT merge cells or put content in multiple cells for 1 Title.
  • We only support .xlsx and .ods file formats.
