 +==== Import Options ====
 +=== Allowed Import Actions ===
 +  * **Create or Update as neccessary**
 +  * **Only create new records**
 +  * **Only update existing records**
 +=== Dry Run (validate data only) ===
 +If **Yes**, no data will actually be imported, but the import file will be validated and errors will be logged.
 +=== Allow changing product type and attribute set for existing products ===
 +  * **No** - Default Magento functionality, Attribute Sets and Product Types can't be changed for existing products.
 +  * **Yes** - Allow overriding Attribute Sets and Product Types for existing products.
 +=== Allow internal values for dropdown attributes ===
 +  * **No** - Only text values of the dropdown attributes will be allowed to be imported. Ex. "Yes", "No", "Blue", "XXL"
 +  * **Yes** - If the imported file was exported by Magento DataFlow, some attributes or categories can use internal numeric IDs. In that case use this option to allow import.
 +=== Allow importing values for not applicable attributes ===
 +  * **No** - Only data for attributes associated with product's attributes set will be imported
 +  * **Yes** - Import all data in the db even for attributes beyond product's attributes 
 +=== If store values the same as default... ===
 +In case the profile is for non admin store, and the imported attribute value equals to the admin (default) value:
 +  * **Use default values** - Do not create special value for the store level, and use default.
 +  * **Create the values for store level** - Set the same value for the store level and do not use default.
 +=== Empty values strategy ===
 +  * **Use default value for new rows, leave existing row value intact** - use default attribute value if it's cell in csv file is empty
 +  * **Set empty value always** - set empty value for attribute value which csv file cell is empty
 +=== If stock qty is 0, mark product as Out of stock ===
 +  * **No** - Do not change stock status, if imported stock quantity is 0.
 +  * **Yes** - Update stock status, if imported stock quantity is 0.
 +=== Try to auto increment duplicate url_key ===
 +  * **No** - Import url_key attribute as is. In case of data integrity problems further url rewrites refresh might have issues
 +  * **Yes** - Check if other products use url_key being imported. if yes alter it using numeric increments until find the value that not used. If url_key is not used by other products will import as is
 +=== Reindex type ===
 +  * **Full (automatically AFTER import)** - Run full reindex after profile finish of those indexers added in 'Reindex' tab
 +  * **Realtime (affected records DURING import)** - run reindex for imported products only to eliminate full reindex of catalog
 +  * **Manual (flag affected indexes)** - Invalidate indexers added in 'Reindex' tab without running reindex
 +=== Auto-Create Missing Values ===
 +== Attribute Option Values ==
 +If **Yes**, create dropdown options for attributes that do not have yet this option. For example, if the column (attribute) is **Color** and new value is **Blue** and it doesn't exist yet for this attribute, it will be automatically created. Case insensitive and trims white spaces.
 +== Attribute Sets ==
 +If **Yes**, will create product attribute sets which do not exist yet, using the attribute set selected in option below as a template.
 +== Autocreated Attribute Set Template ==
 +==== Import Options (Image Options) ====
 +=== Auto-import image files ===
 +If **Yes**, will attempt to import image files from directory specified in **System > Configuration > RapidFlow > Default Dirs > Images Dir**.
 +If the configuration is relative, imported file location will be used, i.e. by default ''var/urapidflow/import/images''.
 +Some predefined variables can be used, such as ''{var}'' and ''{media}'' for common Magento folders.
 +To use default Magento's original imported image files location, use ''{media}/import''.
 +The **Products** data type can import only images that are associated with product attributes, like ''image'', ''small_image'', ''thumbnail''. To import gallery images, use **Products Extra** data type profile.
 +=== Download remote HTTP images ===
 +If the images attribute contain http or https URL:
 +  * **No** - Save raw URL in image product attributes. It is template developer's responsibility to make it work on frontend.
 +  * **Yes** - Attempt to download the images into Magento's media folder during import.
