During Step 3 of the Database Upload process, you will be asked to map the fields in your load file to existing Logikcull fields. Logikcull will attempt mapping suggestions based on the import field name, but it isn't always accurate - we recommend double-checking the mapping before proceeding.

When fields are mapped, that row in the table will turn green.

You can also opt to use the bulk select tool to map all fields, all unmapped fields, or all mapped fields as "import as new," "do not import," or "reset to Logikcull suggestions."

Once you've mapped all of your fields, simply click on "Next: Validate Data" to process the mappings.

⚠️ Note: Any fields without a corresponding Logikcull field can be imported into Logikcull by selecting "Import as new" from the drop down menu or the bulk select tool.

Minimum load file requirements

Here are the recommended minimum load file field requirements in order to validate a set of load files successfully:

  • Begin Doc/Begin Bates - Beginning bates/document identifier number for each record

  • Begin Family/End Family or Begin Attachment/End Attachment - If linking families (i.e. emails and their associated attachments)

  • File Name - File name that includes the file extension (i.e. document.msg)

  • Native File Link - If importing native records

  • Text File Link - If importing OCR text/text files

  • TIME FIELDS: If you have a time field in your load file, a corresponding date field is required. For example, for "File Time Created" to be mapped, there must be a corresponding field available for "File Date Created.

Field Mapping Guide

The table below provides guidance for mapping some of the less intuitive field names so that metadata and file locations can be correctly communicated to Logikcull.
