CSV Import - Reference and Multi-Reference Fields

This is a major feature for larger websites. What happens to complex Wordpress (or any other CMS) sites with hundreds of articles and dozens of categories? It is impossible to match that amount of records manually. 

Not having the ability to import all the content and match the article with the category collection, is a deal breaker for most clients. The Option field is not an alternative because it doesn't generate dynamic pages.

Please, please, please consider adding this briefly.

I'm voting for Webflow being a true Wordpress competitor. This is really a must have.

    Hi everyone - excited to share that you can now map CSV content to reference *and* multi-reference fields when importing your CMS content onto Webflow. Read more in our release notes.

    Has anyone figured out how to upload data into a multi-reference field using Zapier, without the need of using the Webhooks (which is a paid feature within Zapier)? I'm using a basic Zapier to upload a bunch of data from a form, but I receive errors for the multi-reference form. Thanks in advance!

    Great to see this has been added after more than 3 years! Unfortunately it's a little too late for me as I lost a customer because they ended up using a developer that used Wordpress instead.

    I wonder how many votes it will take before it rings the 'New-Dev Bell' at Webflow HQ... - 410 perhaps?

    Almost July 2020 and still have this issue. How? How can I export the CSV and see that the multi-reference field is organized by semi colons but even when following the same structure it doesn't allow it to import? Even if I export the CSV and try to import the same thing I just exported it doesn't let it happen. We need this!

    This will change the game on a major level. Would love to see this in the near future.

    If it wasn't for the API work-around I and many people I know probably wouldn't be able to use Webflow.

    This feature would make things sooooo much easier and accessible for large CMS updates and Wordpress migration.

    This feature could save me so much time, its for frustrating that it isn't available.

    Please make this happen! The fact that this option is missing is really frustrating :/

    It's insane that this isn't available. It makes Webflow useless for any non-new projects that has more than a few dozen items.

    When you can export multi-reference fields but not import them it just feels like this is a feature that could be implemented sooner rather than later. So frustrating!

    Such an important feature.

    Can this be done with the API at least??

    How is this update going? I'm still in the need to upload a 1000 item catalogue to our website and I would need to manually reference the supplier and categories manually.. that's a lot of manual work. Please give us an update, this idea is more than 2 years old and we have no news.

    Split up your categories with a ";" and it will work. Unbelievable that no one from the Webflow team mentioned this.

    I only figured it out because I ran into the same issue, so I simply made a product in Webflow, assigned multiple categories to it then exported it to see how they were storing this data.

    I deleted all my products in Webflow, then reuploaded this .csv and it worked fine.
