Importing into Notes Created by Field RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible when importing Notes into CRM 4.0 to populate the Created By field and not have it default to the user doing the import?  I tried using the User GUID in the Assigned to field and this did not work.

    Thanks

  • You can't set that value when you import notes.  It is a system field and not available for update.  You'll have to store that value in the subject line, description field or some other available field on the note entity.

  • Hi,

     

    If you use the bultin Import wizard, it is not possible to set the CreatedBy or the Owner fields.

    Kind regards,
