CSV Import - batch updates?

Is it possible to do a batch update via CSV importer (or some other method) for a group of existing items in Omeka?

Or if not, can I undo an CSV import, repeat the import of the same items (with updated info) and maintain the relationship with images I've also already batch uploaded via the dropbox plugin?

Thanks for any advice!


An import can be undone from the Status page. However, that works by completely deleting all items and files, so a new import would be just like starting over.

There's not a general batch update via CSV. The hangup is that an update would need to know the ID of the Item in the Omeka database (or some other unique identifier).

That's what I figured - thanks for your help!


Some of my users prefer to manage their data via a simple table in a spreadsheet. So they use my fork of CsvImport (https://github.com/Daniel-KM/CsvImport), that manages updates.

Wow - thanks Daniel. This looks like exactly what I need.

I'll give it a test run!
