CSV Import File – Required Headings

I've uploaded the PremiumPress CSV Spreadsheet Import Plugin - when creating the spreadsheet to upload, which headings are required? The article/video tutorial here is from 2013 - so not sure if this is outdated? https://s.premiumpress.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/27/0/using-excel-spreadsheets-csv I was able to export my existing listings and the file shows all of the headings listed below. A few questions: 1. When uploading new offers, which of these headings would be required? 2. Do all of these headings need to be included in the spreadsheet (blank or not) - or can you upload a file with only the required headings? Any insight is appreciated. Thanks.

    Hello Kari,
    Enter only headings you want included in your listing eg

    ID
    post_author
    post_date
    post_content
    post_title
    post_excerpt
    post_type
    category
    expiry_date
    coupon_type

    Note required headers must be included:
    post_title
    post_excerpt
    post_content

    You can always add more fields after the listings have been uploaded

    Thanks Josh! If uploading a CSV file and not including the ID field, would the admin automatically assign an ID #? Wanting to make sure to not assign an ID # that might already be saved as a different offer. Thanks for your insight.
