When an invalid date is encountered, it looks like the import skips that record. Suggest some kind of message/flag in future versions to alert user which records were skipped. Also, I used a CSV file exported from AE1 to import into AE2, so Event ID was column. You should note in the documentation that Event IDs cannot be imported, and that new IDs will be assigned the imported events.

Yes, that is another thing that is on the planned list. Ideally, some kind of data preview showing the skipped rows would be ideal. Generally speaking, it is better to open an Aeon Timeline 1 file directly in Aeon Timeline 2 rather than using export/import, as some data is lost in the translation. I will update the documentation on both counts.

Thanx...meanwhile, any chance of at least saying X of Y records imported...that would let the user know if something were amiss and needed closer (manual) inspection.

Once the dust settles on the initial release, this will be one of the first things I circle back around to.
