  • Could you be a bit more descriptive in what you are trying to achieve?

    Do you want to use import data from an excel in your plugin? And when/where do you want to trigger this then?

  • Normally you would use the data import tool in "Settings > Data Management > Imports > New"

    If you are going to create your own tool, it wouldn't typically be a plugin, but instead an application that utilizes the crm web service api.

    A plugin is used for trapping an event in CRM and doing something else (whether that be something within CRM or external to CRM).

  • I think you need to make use of the ImportFileStateInfo or ImportStateInfo message for you validation action. I hope it helps you!
