Import requires a file manager

 

The import feature requires a file manager installed on your device. If you don't have one, get one. I recommend ES File Explorer.

Options for importing data

 

Import options When imporing data you have the choice to select between "Merge Lists" and "Rename Lists"

The selected mode determines how to handle new lists with the same names as already existing lists in your application.

If there already exist a list with the same name as the imported list, 'Rename List' will cause the imported list to be renamed, while 'Merge Lists' will merge the existing and imported list, skipping duplicate entries.
