Hi. I bought the Pro version mainly for the CSV import feature. I have 600 locations, each with 8 custom-fields (fields your plugin does not natively accomodate). I planned to use the Extra Fields feature for this. But as far as I can tell, the CSV Import does NOT take the Extra-Fields. So after i import, i’ll have to MANUALLY add 4800 entries.
And, it seem that these Extra Fields are NOT REMEMBERED in the admin-ui, so i need to enter the KEY as well as the VALUE, every time. So that’s 9600 bits of data entry i’m looking at. Please let me know if I missed something, or if there’s a better way to deal with this mess.
And by the way, you have a typo in the admin-ui. You spelled placeholder as placehoder.
on 15th october version, we're releasing this important feature where you'll be able to export extra fields using csv. we'll keep you updated.
Yeah, you'll be able to import extra fields in locations.
How to know if the update has been released yet?

We have released this plugin yesterday on codecanyon but it's under review right now. probably it'll be approved before monday.
You can't export the extra fields in current version but you can import them easily by just adding new columns in the CSV. e.g Phone, Fax, Email and it's values to import in the location.
No matter what i try, i cannot get the extra fields to work. If i add the extra fields such as phone, none of the entries import, if i remove the extra fields and just leave the fields from the sample csv they import fine.
