4. Uncheck the box at the left of any row containing information that does not need to be imported into oneSafe. In the example below, we uncheck the first two rows as they don’t contain any necessary information – one row is blank, the other contains column headings not needed by oneSafe. (In your own case, there may be other rows that you need to uncheck depending on how your original Excel document was arranged.)

5. You now need to let oneSafe for Mac know which data from the imported items goes into which field in oneSafe’s “Web Account” template. This is easy to do!

For each column of information, just choose the most appropriate field from the dropdown list at the top of the column.

Finally hit “Finish” or “Accept All” when you’re done.
