Skuid's Import Wizard is fantastic but can we skin it or at least lose the salesforce header and sidebar easily?

The Import wizard is great and a fantastic tool but the only issue for us is the "salesforce" look and feel. Is there any way we can choose to skin it or strip out the header and sidebar etc?

You can't skin it at present but you can remove the header and sidebar using the magic isdtp=vw query string parameter, which removes the salesforce header and sidebar from any Visualforce page, e.g.

/apex/skuid__Import?obj=Contact&isdtp=vw

No, the Import Wizard is not available on Skuid Platform. What data are you trying to import, and into which data source are you trying to import it? If you're trying to mass-import Users into Skuid Platform, that feature is on our near-term roadmap.

One quick question about the Import Wizard.. is it possible (using the url) to pre define a field value .eg if uploading contacts can we present a field called, say, "active" as true?

For example ..

/apex/skuid__Import?obj=Contact&{!Contact.Active__c}=TRUE&isdtp=vw
