Import Sheets with Shot/Assets having Duplicate Names


At our studio we import client feedback through excel import sheets. We’ll receive feedback on both Shot and Asset tasks.

The issue here is that our Assets and Shots, sometimes, have duplicate names. We need to retain these names as it works with our naming convention check API script.

Basically, the asset name will be the exact same value as the shot, so when we try to import, it will default to selecting the Shot, and then produce an error because the task field doesn’t exist under that Shot- then, we need to manually relink all of the import sheet.

Is there any way to mark the field to default to or specifically chose an asset entity when importing a Link column?

Thank you,
