To import project spec section number and descriptions to the Admin tool.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission:
    • 'Admin' level permissions on the project's Admin tool.
  • If the Specifications tool is an active tool on your project:
  • Additional Information:


  1. Download the Spec Section Import Template: Project_Spec_Section_Import
  2. Add user information to the template. Keep these considerations in mind:
    • ​Template Considerations
      • You must input data as specified by the template's column headers and column order.
      • To avoid import delays and issues, do NOT modify the column headers, do NOT add blank columns, do NOT create additional columns, and do NOT leave rows blank.
    • Considerations for Row Data
      • Each row in the table corresponds to an individual spec section record. There is no limit to the number of rows you can import. However, rows must not be blank.
      • Be aware that copy/cut-and-paste operations between applications might add special or hidden characters to your file. For example, if you cut data from Microsoft Word and then paste it into Microsoft Excel, you might be pasting hidden characters into your file. This can negatively impact the import process and cause import errors.
      • Special/hidden characters that should NOT be pasted into a file include.
        • '  (single quote) 
        • "  (double quote)
        • 1/2 (forward slash)
        • -  (dash)
        • ,  (comma)
  3. Copy the entirety of your table not including blank rows and columns.

  4. Navigate to the Project level Admin tool.
  5. Click the Spec Sections page under Project Settings in the right pane.
  6. Paste the contents of the import template into the Import box in the right pane.

  7. Click Import Spec Sections
    • Note: Shortly after, your spec sections will show up in the log.
