Using the API to update existing records (tips)

We were able to hire a developer to use the web API to develop a program  to update existing records using a .csv file. This took around a week  of development plus ramp up time, for a total of ~2.5k.

If you'd like the contractor's details, I can pass them on.

Some hiccups we ran into:
- Make sure you handle the long text fields somehow. The first time we  tested the update, it corrupted several of the long-text fields and we  lost that information. Create several REALLY full candidate profiels  that you test on before applying it to actual candidates

Howdy, Stranger!
