hi there
I am trying to import my products via csv.
keeping things simple, I have a product with two attributes: “sku” and “impresses”, where “impresses” is multiple choice and contains values “chicks”,"babes" and “all women”.

I tried in my csv:
“sku001","chicks babes”
“sku001","chicks, babes”
“sku001”,"chicks,babes"
“sku001","chicks; babes”

None of them is working. I always get an error like
Invalid attribute option specified for attribute impresses (chicks, babes), skipping the record

Can anyone tell me the right syntax to use?

Thanks in advance

As noone tends to have any idea, I tried on my own a little. Poorly without any susccess.

I tried to export some of my products to find out about the right syntax, but it turned out, that the export is having problems with these multiple select fields as well:

Invalid option id specified for impresses (273,270,271,266,265), skipping the record

( products where just one option is chosen will be exported just fine. )

Any suggestion from anyone?

Thank you for you answer, Moshe.

Is there any schedule when this feature will be implemented?

I would love to see multi-select attributes too.

Good use of this feature would be to select say, Single-family home, condo / co-op while searching for houses or be able to use it for foods with multiple ingredients e.g. peanuts and almonds
