Mapping Fields

After clicking Continue, you’ll have to map your fields to our system fields. The app will try to automatically map your fields, but you should make sure to review them for duplicate mappings or missing fields.

If you receive an error, make sure you read the error and update your mapping to avoid the error again. To read about the errors you may encounter, check out our Errors section.
