  1. Nota will allow for the importing of a .csv file. Please make sure your file is set up as per the below:
    1. Cell A1 should contain “Client Matter”
    2. Cell B1 should contain “Matter ID
    3. Column A (Client Matter) should contain the Client Name (e.g. Last First)
    4. Column B should contain a Matter ID. Matter ID needs to contain at least 1 alpha character

    e. Do not assign funds to client matters on this file, you will be able to do that within the application

    f. Save the file as .csv.

*In excel click File, Save as, Enter a file name and use the drop down to save as CSV UTF-8 (Comma delimited)(*.csv)

*In numbers click File, Export To, CSV, do not include table names, click Next, then click Export

2.  Click on Import Client Matter 

3.  Click Choose file, select your file

Congratulations! Your Nota screen will refresh and you can view your newly imported client matters under Client Matters section.

If your file has errors you will be notified in red within the importer window. You will need to correct the file and import again.

Common Errors

  1. The file is not in the correct format, please see above for saving a file as .csv

  4. There are extra columns in the file
  5. The Client Matter (A1) and Matter ID (B1) fields are not correctly labeled
