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.

Officially planned - August 5, 2020
Todays date - Dec 16, 2020 (1,898 days OR 5 years, 2 months, and 10 days since original idea was shared, but who is counting anyways LOL)
133 days OR 4 months and 11 days since idea has been moved to the PLANNED phase and still no implementation.
I am not sure about anyone else, but I am not sure I can justify $199 annually just for updates and some "features" that are free with every other sport plugin...
This is definitely a well claimed feature, which many of us have been looking forward to.
It's imperative to upload Player Metrics such as Height and Weight.
Furthermore, importing metrics could be flexible to retrieve new created metrics, since these are filed that could be added to the array.
Looking forward to the implementation.

including a REST API to excell, would be awsome...

Yes please, could do with this right now. I'm migrating an existing club website to SportsPress Pro and having the ability to import event data including the 'article' field for the match report would be so much easier than manually updating like I'm having to now.

@Olivier Ferland I hope you can find this message and help me out. I saw you say Wp all import is working for you. I am having trouble importing events. Only one team gets imported. I don't know why this is so but if you would share how you went about importing I'll be forever grateful for the assistance. Anyone who is using wp all import and knows how to import events please help point me towards how you went about importing events. Thanks.

Can anyone confirm if this has been addressed?
I'm about ready to ask for a refund as this makes league management practically impossible.
Peter Müller commented
Yes, more possibilities should be given, eg. also for the metrics data are deposited.
if you use the csv importer for fixtueres it takes the "post-name" or full team name. you can see this in this link:
If you create the event by your self, it takes the short name and this is really nice :)
so it shall allways takes the short name.
The Import is way too limiting. Mostly, I have been using it create the dates for Events, then have to manually adjust each event.
It needs to be more robust and flexible.
Secondly, if you import a fixture, it doesn't map to an existing team! It keeps creating new teams- Import need to use the team slug.
Lastly, JSON import would be much better
Same here - would love this for bulk player uploads
Come on fix this please, whats the hold up jezus.

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
Eric Bernal commented
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,...
