I received an error when importing. What does the error mean?
Loox enables merchants to import reviews using a review export file/the Loox import template.
When a value of a certain field does not match the required criteria, a message error appears in the "Error" column that is added to your imported file (that is included in the review import summary email).
Here's a short explanation of what the error you've received might mean:
Product not found:
The value mentioned in the "product_handle"/"handle"/"product_url" column is either absent or does not correspond to a product in your store.
A product handle is the last part of the product URL (after the last "/"): For example, for this product: store.com/products/blue-t-shirt the handle is blue-
Also, make sure to attribute reviews to an active product only (one that appears in your Shopify Product dashboard only).
Review date invalid:
The value mentioned in the "created_at"/"review_date"/"reviewed_at"/etc.
The correct date format for Loox reviews is YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS UTC.
For example, " 2020-01-09 08:54:01 UTC".
The date must appear as Year-Month-Day, other formats will not be accepted.
Review date cannot be in the future:
The value that is mentioned in the "created_at"/"review_date"/"reviewed_at"/etc.
Reviewer name is missing:
The value mentioned in the "author"/"nickname"/"reviewer_name"/etc. field does not exist. Since this is a required field, please fill in this data.
Review body is missing:
The value mentioned in the "body"/"review_body"/"review"/etc. field does not exist. Since this is a required field, please fill in this data.
The value mentioned in the "rating"
Note - these messages might appear when the column's header does not match the original template's column name.
