  Allow TITLE to be other than 1st column in import CSV
Posted by: thankyouclassadlister - 08-26-2020, 02:09 PM - Forum: Classadlister Suggestions/Questions - Replies (2)

I use Airtable to create my listings. I know this is not the Airtable user forum but I won't be able to make any suggestion for changes there because the issue I describe here is not a limitation of Airtable (Actually it is a database application by design so 1st column in database is always special). 

In my earlier post I described how to get AirTable working with ClassAdLister.  I create listings in Airtable and then use then Zapier and Google sheets and some manipulation to download data. So far so good...

However, I want to have 2 tables in Airtable. One is for data dump, the other is clean data ready for import. Here is what I have done:

In my Airtable database I have 2 tables. The 1st table is (called TABLE) where I dump new listings - either by typing in, or on mobile device or through a web-form of AirTable. Works well. The 2nd table is (called VIEW) is where the finished listings (line items) are copied. The trigger is condition - a checked checkbox in in one of the columns in the 1st table. When the listing line item has all complete information, I would press a check box beside it and the line will appear in the 2nd table. The way it works is my 2nd table is looking up information in the 1st table (LOOKUP function). The LOOKUP function looks up for a value in 1st table based on reference value in a field in the 2nd table. Then I have a filter setup in 2nd table to only show listings thad do have a checkmark in 1st table. 

Now the issue is, I want to create the export CSV file from the 2nd table (VIEW table). This has data ready to import into ClassAdLister. ClassAdLister requirement is the Import CSV file MUST be a Title field.  However, the way AirTable works, it doesn't allow me the Title field to be the first column in my 2nd table.  The reason is doesn't allow it because the 1st column in AirTable cannot have a LOOKUP function. It can have formula but not lookup from another field. LOOKUP is not available in the 1st column. 

So I can't have Title in the 1st column. The only way for me to deal with it is right now to open the CSV and manually swap columns. Not a big deal.

But I was wondering why ClassAdLister doesn't allow TITLE to be the 2nd or whatever column. It's looking for the "Title" field anyhow, so why would it need to be the 1st column in order for the import to work.

As I said, it's a bit specific my request, I don't want to ask for too much, it's a great application as it is no complains. 

Thank you. Here is the image of the lookup function:

  Multiple ebay sites?
Posted by: thankyouclassadlister - 08-23-2020, 05:44 PM - Forum: Classadlister Suggestions/Questions - Replies (1)

The app supports only one ebay site login right? 

Is there a way to have ebay.com and other site e.g. ebay.de in the app?

Ebay doesn't provide cross-site visibility. Posting items on COM site doesn't makes them visible on CA and CO.UK but not on other sites and vice versa. Ebay is rolling out managed payments and apparently that feature is included but it's invite only right now. 

I need to post to multiple sites because I have inventory in different locations in different countries and I need to be local. 

I can do that in one of the following ways:
- create a Clone of the app (e.g. using App Cloner or similar)
- install another instance into Island (or similar Workspace app)
- use something like Samsung Secure Folder
- or the the worst case scenario setup additional user on the device. 

All these options are good if I want to keep the inventory files separate.  That works for me fine. 

However, it may not be ideal if I had a large inventory of items and I wanted to post the same inventory to multiple ebay sites. To do that, I would have more than one copy of ClassAdLister each with full database of items. 

Would that work? 

Can I assign a Location in the app to a specific Ebay site? That would make sense.

I don't want to ask for too much, I mean this is a great app already. So if there is no plans to support multiple logins for ebay then not a big deal, I can work around it as mentioned earlier.

  Multiple logins per site?
Posted by: thankyouclassadlister - 06-22-2020, 08:51 PM - Forum: Classadlister Suggestions/Questions - Replies (1)

Is it possible to allow multiple logs-ins per site?

I have more than one login for some sites. For example Kijiji and other sites. (Various reasons, privacy, posting limit etc) Right now I am using App Cloner to make a perfect clone of ClassAdLister (with storage re-direct) to make a copy of it.  I am sorry if I am infringing any copyright or intellectual work but I need to be able to have multiple logins.

  On subject of sync multiple devices with same credentials
Posted by: thankyouclassadlister - 06-10-2020, 08:40 AM - Forum: Classadlister Suggestions/Questions - Replies (1)

I have a dedicated phone but I also use tablet. Wondering if I can use ClassAdLister on both devices and both devices will have same site/user accounts credentials.

Option 1:

Can use ClassAdlister on multiple devices without issues?  Of course I would only use one device at a time and I'll make sure ClassAdLister is completely shut down, not only closed, before opening ClassAdLister on a different device.

Option 2:

If that is not going work (perhaps risk of database corruption due to conflicts etc. maybe??), then I am thinking simply synchronizing the database.  I see I can do import export database. OK. That's seems should work. But I wonder if I can do more conveniently by copying and replacing database files.

I see DB is in Android/Data/com.iss.classadlister/files/classadlister/databases/

What I intent do use is Synchronize Ultimate App on Android and have the database synced (*manually - on demand*). 


So Question is:
1) is Option 1 feasible without issues?
2) if Option 2 not going work, will there be an issue now or in the future if I copy the files and replace them (...without going through the procedure of importing / exporting.. )

Thank you.

  How import from AirTable to ClassAdLister
Posted by: thankyouclassadlister - 06-07-2020, 07:36 PM - Forum: Classadlister Suggestions/Questions - Replies (10)

First of all - kudos to the developer. I want to say thanks to the developer for making such a project and maintaining it. 

I'm experimenting now with Airtable to Classadlister import. I have 100's of items in Airtable. Airtable cells can hold images. The images are hosted by Airtable and their URL's are exposed (e.g. when copying or exporting the data the image address is visible)  


Here is an example of a record copied:

Name of the item     999.99    Description of the item.         IMG_20200308_092432316.jpg 

Note, the link will be disabled after I delete my test table I created in AirTable just to test this now, so if the link doesn't work it doesn't mean the external links don't work if you make a table.

To clean it up:

If multiple photos attached in Airtable cell, I need to separate the image file name and the actual link to the image because multiple images are just lumped together in CSV export and they show up in one cell in Excel. To separate then, I'll do just import text as CSV or use tool to separate values. So each image will have its own cell:

IMG_20200308_092432316.jpg (https://dl.airtable.com/.attachments/749...432316.jpg) 

Now I need one more step to get rid of the image file name (in blue), and the bracket (pink)  and just leave the image link. That's it.  Now the import should into classadlister.

I don't have experience with programming or doing any sort of macros. Going through the import into Excel and trying to clean up looks like OK, but if ClassAdLister was able to do that for me, that would be great. 

I'm not checking my emails very often, maybe 3-4 times per month so if I don't respond, I didn't get a chance to read emails yet.

  Feature Request: Upload Multiple Images At One Time
Posted by: nnasales - 05-05-2020, 06:01 PM - Forum: Classadlister Suggestions/Questions - Replies (2)


First I want to say thank you again for creating this tool, and for being so responsive to your user's questions and suggestions. Your app has made listing items across marketplaces substantially easier, and has helped me significantly increase my sales. 

Would it be possible to upload multiple pictures at one time when adding images through the "File +" option? This is more a quality of life suggestion, so not high priority.  

Also, it looks like you are no longer listed in the Google Play store and have shifted to APK downloads only. Does that mean you are planning on ending updates or retiring the app?

Thanks again!

  Windows 10 Access
Posted by: treasuretrove - 02-09-2020, 05:59 PM - Forum: Classadlister Suggestions/Questions - Replies (1)


Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this forum!

I tried to access and make available the .apk on Windows 10, to no avail. I thought I saw that I could do it, but hope someone can steer me in the right direction. I've tried several Chrome extensions, and other installs from online, but they either don't seem to want to finish, or have other issues.

Thank you very much.

  Amazon Setup Problem
Posted by: dittos - 01-21-2020, 05:15 PM - Forum: Classadlister Suggestions/Questions - Replies (4)

I'm trying to add Amazon AWS credentials, but I know extremely little about what I'm doing. I have added several third-parties to my AWS credentials before (InventoryLab, the BQool repricer, etc.) so I can fumble my way through it.

But I've been returning to ClassAdLister several weeks and just keep giving up. But I really want to use ClassadLister, especially since I subscribed for 6 months.

I keep getting this error message: "The XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below."

Then I get this XML code error (assuming I can post a screen shot here of my Android):
[Image: Screenshot_20200121-150625_ClassAdLister.jpg?dl=0]

PERHAPS I'm not doing something initially. Do I first need to tell Amazon, through my User Settings in the AWS area, that ClassAdLister is going to be needing something? I didn't see that in the video or text setup instructions for ClassAdLister.

Thank you so much for any help,
Greg Perry

  Platform Request? (OfferUp)
Posted by: totalcontrol - 01-16-2020, 04:49 PM - Forum: Classadlister Suggestions/Questions - Replies (1)

First off I want to say thanks for all the hard work and effort. The app is almost perfect. It is missing one major platform which is OfferUp. Here in Las Vegas OfferUp is bigger than Letgo or Craigslist etc. If OfferUp was included I could literally use Classadlister exclusively. Thanks for any help in advance and keep up the good work!
