Select a layer for data importing

5 min Medium


There are three scenarios when selecting a layer for importing data:

  1. a new layer with new layer type
  2. a new layer with existing layer type
  3. an existing layer

(Note: For new users, there is no existing layers and layer types in the account, so the new user should follow Scenario 1 to create a new layer with new layer type.)

Scenario 1: Create a new layer with new layer type

To create a new layer with new layer type, please refer to the steps in Create a new layer type for detailed operations.

Scenario 2: Create a new layer with existing layer type

If you have already created a layer type before and the imported data fields match the layer type, you can select an existing layer type for your new layer.

Scenario 3: Select an existing layer

During the data import process, in order to select an existing layer for the imported data, click on the image1089 icon to display the list of current available layers.
