By adding a price list for your common parts and services, your team can save time and have more consistency when creating estimates and invoices. Follow the steps below to import a price list into mHelpDesk.
Before you import:
Your file should be in a "tab delimited" format (this is a type of CSV) with your customers' name in the left column. Also, the file should have the column headers provided below in the top row of the file. You should include all columns, even if they are blank.
- Type Note: this is to describe the item, and must be one of the following: Product, Service, Discount, Discount %, Other Charge, Other Charge %
- TaxCode Note: this must be one of the following options: TAX, NON
- AsOf Note: Use the format mm/dd/yyyy
Now that your file is in the correct format, we can begin the import process!

4. In the Mapping Fields screen, check that the boxes have the correct information and click Save. This confirmation screen will appear when the import begins.(Screenshot C)

5. Once you receive the email confirmation, refresh your mHelpDesk account and your price list will now be available in your account.
