Import Multi-Reference Cell

Is there any way to import a multi-reference cell information at all?

If not, do I basically need to enter it manually for x,xxx cells within WebFlow?

Hi @mrimpossible, at the moment the multi-reference values need to be added manually to the multi-reference collection field, the import does not yet support reference fields.

Here is the item on the Wishlist, I would love to have your vote and comment on this: https://wishlist.webflow.com/ideas/WEBFLOW-I-937

Thanks in advance

Already upvoted it!

Was hoping it had been addressed in the feature set. Makes it a bit difficult to not be able to import that along with the rest…

Hi @mrimpossible, Thanks for the upvote and for your comments. I can totally understand the need for this, and as soonest there is an update I will make sure to update this post.

I just upvoted this too…more than 2 years later. (sigh).

I heard there was an API workaround? Anyone have instructions/details on that?

Webflow’s API does support multi-reference fields and is very well documented (with examples). If you’re comfortable using JSON RESTful APIs, it’s an ease to use. (the only tricky part is the rate-limit of 60/min, so you have to handle queuing and async error handling).

Otherwise, you can import multi-reference fields with a CSV file using a new tool that I’ve built on top of their API. If that’s what you were hoping for, please get in touch.
