I needed a way to mass import form submissions into Plone’s EasyForm, so after a bit of exploration and some creativity I built a custom CSV import tool. Through an Action on the tool-bar, a user can export a CSV with the appropriate form fields, update it, and import back to that form. Each row represents an EasyForm submission and mimics the submission process for that form. Even the form actions get processed.

In this talk, I will walk through the my process examining how EasyForm handles submitted information, following the trail deep into CRUD forms, and piecing that newfound knowledge together to create the tool.
