Import - Step 2 of 2

The dialogs for importing a Custom Element, Metadata form, or a Custom Field are similar. The Import - Step 2 of 2 dialog identifies all required and optional items included in the object archive, displays validation or error information, and options for completing, canceling, or editing the import.

The dialog displays the following for your review or verification:

Note: If you are importing a custom element that includes custom field types or render handlers housed within the ADF, CommonSpot checks to see if the ADF is installed and stops the import if it does not find it. If you are using the CommonSpot Application Development Framework, check that both your web server mapping and the ADF directory are named ADF (all caps).

Click Prev to return to the Step 1 dialog or Cancel to exit. Click Import to complete the import operation. CommonSpot automatically installs the new object on your site.
