Re: NEW! Json Feed Manager 2019 Windows Desktop Software

Hi,
I have some questions about importing .csv files.
1- Is there any template for .csv?
2- Can I merge a .csv to an existing .json?

I have a big json file (3.2 Mb) and it's working perfectly. for adding new series to my json file, it's really easy to use spread sheet to manage all episodes. I want to add series without entering episodes one by one.

The software installs a Samples folder that contains a working example of importing a Comma Separated Value file (csv).
You cannot merge a .csv into a .json.  However, you can import the .csv to create a .json, and, merge it with an existing .json file.

More info is available on our website.

Look like I missed the existing user discount.
Let me know if you offer the 50% discount for existing users.

For me, the new features are not a need, but may be nice to have.
What I would really like is the ability to create the first screen as categories.  That would be worth an update, so I can have multiple channels/categories in one channel, instead of making different channels for each category.

My primary channel is Music, but I want to start doing events.  It would look silly to have events not related to Music on the music channel, but if my channel were like a tv station with different categories, I can keep them all in the single channel as categories.  That way I only have to promote the single channel instead of promoting multiple channels. 

Can you make a landing page for categories?
