The main challenge here is to resolve as efficiently as possible the values coming from Excel into the Field Validation values. But it's definitely a great idea, so let's open it for votes.

Hi,

The PPMetrics Excel Interface (XLI) supports updates to table component data, including automatically inheriting the user's PPM security settings, field validations, SQL/UI rules, concurrency management, links to PPM etc. 

The youtube below demonstrates how it works for non table component request fields, but it works the exact same way for TC's. Please email info@ppmetrics.com for details.

Switch to 10:25 on the video.

Our team is currently working on a custom solution to this problem. Something that's officially supported and comes standard would be great!

Hi

@Itay_Erhard Thanks a lot for your input and yes I am aware about XLI Interface. Idea is to have this functionality out of the box available as its having lot of usage.

By the way, could not find anything more specific instruction from the video, to upload the details directly to Table component.

@bcramer Thanks for your support as well.

Yes, the youtube demonstrates how it works for non table component request fields, but it works the exact same way for TC's. If you're curious to see what it looks like for TC's, email us at info@ppmetrics.com and I'm sure they'll be able to help you.

Cheers,

Itay
