Item Import Tutorial
Using our pre-formatted .csv file, importing to ShareMyToolbox is a breeze. Want to know all the details, including required fields and format? Take a look at the following tutorial before getting started:
In the Web Portal, navigate to the Items menu.
Download the Template
Next, click on Import Items button on the top right of the page.
The first thing you’ll want to do is download our pre-formatted .csv template file.

Tip: Send your Import template to us for review. We are glad to help out!
Warning: Importing is an ADD TO and not REPLACE. If you import the same Items twice you WILL double the number or items.
Tip: Start small. Practice importing with 10 Items. Keep it narrow such as an Import by Employee or Location.
Caution: If you are importing by Employee or Location, do NOT import quantity items. Do those separately and then loan them. You will end up with the same item with multiple records.
Don't worry! If you import 5000 items and realize you want to change something, call us and we can mass delete your data and you can re-import.
ShareMyToolbox gives you the ability to Export your Items in Excel format. To get started, go to the Items menu.
Export All or Filtered List
You’ll have the ability to Export your entire Items database, or you can perform a Search / Filter and just export filtered records. For example, if you want a list of Items currently Loaned, click on the Loaned tab and then click on the Export to Excel button in the top right.
When you click on the button choose Export filtered list or Export all.
Next, click EXPORT.
ShareMyToolbox will download an Excel file to your computer.
Note: Why Excel and not csv? By giving you an Excel file, we’re able to automatically add sort and filter options to the header row, giving you the ability to further analyze your Items right in Excel.
