Custom import tool in Back-End page

Johnny Nguyen asked on March 27, 2018 13:05


I have an excel file contains more than 200 data rows for my custom page type. The logic to import is too complicated for Kentico Import Toolkit, so I think I need to create a custom module or back-end page or somethings like to to handle the import.

The import tool should has an UI to allow user upload an excel file then can return the result. It would be better if the tool can include to the Administrator UI. Is there any way to register a new application in Administrator UI like Pages, Forms applications, or can a custom module can satisfy?

Thank you very much

Hi Johnny,

You can create custom module and under 'User intereface' create a new UI element. Under section 'Element content' you can select 'User control' for type and target URL can be link to you custom .aspx page, like:


In that way, you can set up permissions for the app, so that only certain users can do imports.

Best regards, Dragoljub
