Hi all! I have a base of student information that needs to be updated every semester when new students enroll. I get an excel spreadsheet from our registrar with the student information on it, but I’d like to pare it down to just the unique records before I import, or have Airtable only import unique records. I just dumped everything and used the Dedupe app last semester and it took me several hours to tidy everything up, so I’m not doing that again. Is there a quick way to only import unique records into Airtable?

The CSV Import app lets you merge records based on one field that you specify. So, it would merge the old records and add the new records.

Thanks, @ScottWorld! This is exactly what I’m looking for.
