This guide shows you how to import intakes and determine the information you want to add to the intake during the import process. Make sure you import parties before importing intakes. After completing this guide, you will be able to import matters and reference these intakes in the Primary Intake field.

1. Create a CSV file containing every field you want to add to the new parties you are creating. Required fields include:

• Client: Use the Party ID generated in the Party Report we created in part one of this guide. Or reference the Client's name exactly.
• Case Type: Reference one of the LRN case types, or create a custom case type.
• Status: Set the status as Converted if you are importing matters connected to these intakes. If not, you do not need to reference this field. All intakes imported without referencing the Status field will be automatically set to Open.
• Created At: Optionally set the created at date with this format: 02/20/2015T12:04:12.000GMT+01:00
