✂️ Cut, copy and paste
You can now use your usual keyboard shortcuts to cut, copy and paste content in the line items grid, just like you would in a spreadsheet!
You can use this to quickly and easily build out your requirements, and to move data to and from other apps like Excel and Google sheets.
If you paste a lot of data and there aren't enough rows, then DeepStream will even offer to add more rows for you automatically.
To cut or copy
Select 1 or more cells in the grid.
Use your usual keyboard shortcut to Cut or Copy.
Windows – "Ctrl + X" to Cut; "Ctrl + C" to Copy
Mac – "⌘ + X" to Cut; "⌘ + C" to Copy.
If prompted by your browser, you'll need to give DeepStream read access to your clipboard for this feature to work.
You'll see a success message at top-right.
Select a target 1 or more target cells to paste into.
Use your usual keyboard shortcut to Paste.
On Windows this is "Ctrl + V" and on Mac it's "⌘ + V".
If prompted by your browser, you'll need to give DeepStream read access to your clipboard.
If more rows are needed to ensure all your data is added to the grid, you'll see a popup to give you the option to add more rows automatically.
You'll see success or error messages at top-right.
👀 Expanded view
You can expand the grid view to fill the full height and width of the screen when you're editing. Useful for when you're dealing with a lot of line items and fields and can benefit from the extra space.
To use expanded view
Click the Expand view button just above the grid – the view will fill all the available width and height of the window.
Make the window larger to add more space as needed.
You'll leave expanded view when you Save or Cancel the section, or click the Shrink view button at the top.
⬇️ Full CSV download
You can now generate and download a CSV containing all of the fields and content within your draft line items section.
You can use this to import data into other apps and systems, or edit the CSV separately and then import it back into DeepStream if desired.
To download a CSV
Click More actions and choose Download CSV.
The CSV will be generated and downloaded automatically.
⬆️ CSV import for all fields
DeepStream now supports importing to all fields you've added to your line items section, including custom fields.
The CSV import flow also features an improved preview of the values you are importing with an expansive grid view, more configuration and clearly highlighted errors.
To import from CSV
Click More actions and choose Import from CSV.
Select a CSV file and choose Upload.
Use the Preview to review and adjust your import.
Errors – Affected cells, rows, and columns will show a warning icon and be highlighted in orange. Values with errors will not be imported.
Map fields – Use this menu to adjust how CSV fields are mapped to fields in DeepStream. Ensure that the correct fields are mapped to avoid errors.
Exclude first row – Enable this if your CSV data has a header row
Click Import to add your new line items.
They will be added to the bottom of any line items you've already added to the section.
Product & Service tags
Product & Service tags conform to the UNSPSC standard and have a special format in the grid to ensure they can be imported (or copied and pasted) correctly.
A value for a product and service tag consists of the tag number in square brackets, followed by the tag name. For example:
 Solar diodes
Any value you import or paste into this field must include at least the tag ID within square brackets (for example
) or it will be ignored.
