How do I set up certain types of data in an imported Microsoft List?
I have moved a Microsoft List from one shared platform to my platform. The way I did this was to first download it as an Excel file to my local computer. Then I formatted the CSV data to be an actual Table in Excel. Then I saved this into an Excel Workbook file.
Now, I assume it goes without saying that, doing all this and using the resulting file to upload and create a new Microsoft List would mean that all the data type information is lost and each column would be assumed to be text.
After I have used the Excel Workbook file to set up the new Microsoft List, I am taken to the “Customize” phase where I can define the column type. I can match the “Title” column to be the same as the Microsoft List I am copying from. I can set data types defined as Choice to be a Choice type. But here I come to my first question. How do I further set up a Choice data types to be a set of types and have them color-coded as they are in the List I am copying from?
And here is my second question. A few of the columns are Person types. How do I set up a Person type? The Person option is not even available as an option in the Customize phase.
The only options I am given are:
* Single Line of Text
* Multiple Line of Text
* Do Not Import
