Last updated: 03 Jul, 2014

 Aristotle now supports political committee and disbursement imports.   Please note we still recommend using COSMOS data to import Federal committees and you must link committee data to legislators to realize maximum benefit of this enhancement and the 360 system.

 Select your Data File:

Select the source file that contains the data you wish to import. Remember, 360 does not support .XLSX files and the file size is capped at 50 MB. If you are working with a larger file please contact your Aristotle contact to arrange for larger files to be imported.

Select Source File that contains your political committee/disbursement data. -> Set Import Type as "Committee" - Add Import Title and Description

Map Your Data Points - Map your Data Points; During the data mapping, the following Field Data Types and Destination fields should be available. The import Wizard will scan your column headers and provide fields to which you will map your data within 360. Please take care and review how you are associating your data. Prudent users will test their Import mapping by importing a single or limited number of records to insure the data is aligning to your business needs.
