Overview

Certain information can be uploaded to the NAIT system in bulk. This is done using an Excel comma separated value (CSV) file. For smaller numbers of animals it may be easier to enter the information into the system manually. The table below shows how the maximum records that can be uploaded into the system via CSV compared with the UI:
