Rydoo made adding and editing multiple categories easier using an excel file. Here's how:

Step 1. Prepare your import file

There are two ways on how to obtain this:

Download the export file


Create from blank excel sheet

Step 2: Add/Edit details

From the Export file, you can delete the default categories and replace them with your new set of categories when necessary. Columns that are not applicable to your company can be removed except for the following:

  • Name

  • Branch Name

  • Branch Id (Only if you have branch id added in Branch page)

  • Status (0 = when setting a category to Inactive; 1 = when settings a category to active or adding a new one)


Proceed in opening a new blank excel sheet with all the required columns/headers.


When creating an import file from scratch, it is important that you follow the exact column name as shown above as it is case sensitive. A full list of possible header/column names can be found here.

Step 3: Import

Once done exporting categories, you may use the same exact file to update existing category details.

Import categories page appears

You can drag and drop your saved file on this page. You can also click browse to manually select the file.

Please note that once imported, additional categories are added right away.
