I have thousands of URL's to pictures that I want to copy to "In field on record".  One picture per record.  Is that possible?

We have quite a few Customer use cases Bill where product objects all have url's stored that display an image?

On salesforce you need a URL type field and then to display you can do it with a formula field or with the image component on skuid?

Is that what you were after?

I think you can do this using the salesforce dataloader tool:

Hi Bill.

As Chandra mentioned, the urls can all be copied with the salesforce dataloader tool in to a field on the object or you can use https://dataloader.io/ or other.

If you produce a csv file listing them all you can even use the mass import tool on salesforce and select create records.

Does this work for your use case?
