If you need to get an overview of your customers or your suppliers, importing your data on the map is a very useful feature to analyse your catchment area.
With OALLEY, you can add your own data set from an Excel file to perform a detailed analysis.
To import your data on the map, you must have an Excel file containing the addresses of your points.
You can have as many columns as you want on the file.
Saving the file as a CSV
To import your file in OALLEY, you need to save it as a CVS file:
- File > Save as
- Click on Browse
- In the dialog box, in the “Save as type:” zone, choose CSV (Comma delimited).
