Make Import more flexible
Now, import for players works only with fields, that are in your sample CSV file. Make it to recognize other fields by column name.
And it will be super handy to have ability to export the data that I already have to CSV and then make changes, maybe add some new data and import it all back.

I just bought the league license and I have the same issue with the import file, it is very limiting.
Could have at least included all the fields available not just a fraction for each post type. Now I have to comeback and manually edit each one, defeats the purpose of having an import utility.

Developers have slow down their work on the plugin? I am waiting for this update for a very long time ...
could we please have an update to this idea? it is going on almost four years now and this would be an amazing update as well

WP All import / WP All export seems to be working for me! I haven't tested all the details yet but so far so good

A user should be able to import and map to all the fields available for events and players
A user should be able to export data as well and make tweaks and re-import

JSON support would be outstanding. An example, would be the NFL's live .JSON roster feeds - https://feeds.nfl.com/feeds-rs/roster/2120.json
Please export option and add new support for more fields such as height and weight.
I need to be able to import and export player details, player metrics and DOB (I added other fields in the metrics that I needed like address, city etc.) I also need to be able to export teams filtered by leagues.
Importing all the data of a already played match is a must if you want that potential customers like me migrate to Sportspress. All the data means matchday, starting lineup, substitutes and minutes, position, squad number, stars,...

I need to export my schedule to a CSV so that my referees can import it into their system. Right now, if I make a change it has to be made in way to many places manually. This leads to mistakes. This is a crucial feature.

For me most desired featured are to import whole statistics from x matches by one csv file. Sometimes I have 8 matches per day and import two times for every match is taking to much time.
Please also make possibility import/export places.

CSV Import needs to be fixed on almost every aspect. This development needs to go through SOON.
Rebuilding a new site for our leagues. DOB of hundred players have manually edit one by one, it's a painful. Save me please!!!
Also have the ability to do the same with fixture imports. I have events that are part of multiple competitions. For instance, different age groups are a sub-competition of our league overall competition (so I can create master calendar, by division calendar, etc). I can import of them and then have to manually add the second to each of the 180 fixtures that are imported for season.
I need a better import tool, I have data for about 400 players and to add in all the metrics individually would be a huge time waster. A better import tool that allows me to import all the metrics at once from a CSV file would be greatly appreciated.
The lack of import/export functionality adds 10+ hours of manual work per week for us to manage 40 teams in 4 leagues (not to mention the high risk of human errors).
This is not just an useful tool. It is a MUST HAVE please.
This is a fantastic and extremely important idea.
When importing players, it would be great to incorporate user defined fields. These include pertinent fields such as residential address, cell phone, email address, etc.
When exporting player details, it is essential that we include fields such as player's game statistics, shirt number, full name, email address & team name. In fact, it would be extremely useful to be able to select the details required for export.

Import is a basic tool I use for injecting matches and players - I would appreciate to add player numbers, positions, action minutes (stats), substitutes and minutes, match day, stuff, referee etc.
I spent so much time by updating that after import manually.
Export as well (players, events) !!!
For a pro stats program to NOT have full import export functions is really an amateur move. I don't think you realize just how many leagues are not using this because of this very issue. I have wanted to use this for several years now, i still really want to use it but no proper import and non existing export is making me feel very nervous with my 15+ years of stats to load.
The other thing you need to get a grip on is that voting up these features is all fine and dandy but the leagues that need proper import export functions aren't using sportspress because they don't want to loose their stats and that means they aren't voting for anything!
SportsPress is already the best wordpress addon for stats out there and if you only worked on import export functions you would be miles ahead.. it's a real shame . . because anyone who is serious about their league stats cannot live without these features period. Not something that should be begged for on an idea board year after year as it's a standard requirement for a pro product.
