For now, existing account holders will not be affected by this change and can continue using the tool to convert their CSV files into IATI XML data. The IATI technical team will be contacting users shortly about the next stages of the process.
CSV2IATI is being decommissioned to improve the experience of organisations who share their development and humanitarian activities to IATI. Due to a substantial increase in the number of IATI publishers, the tool is struggling to convert files for a rapidly expanding volume of data and does not support recent changes to the IATI Standard.
CSV2IATI is scheduled to be turned-off in the spring of 2018. The IATI technical team is currently working with a range of providers to ensure alternative options are available and we can support publishers to transition to alternative tools.
Further information on support for existing CSV2IATI users and the timetable of the decommissioning process will be shared in the near future. Keep updated and post questions on IATI’s online forum Discuss or email the IATI technical team: [email protected].
