Import alert placeholder values

You can import values for alert placeholders for single-select and multi-select picklists. Importing the values helps you avoid entering multiple values, especially if you are creating a long list.
Import the values from a .csv file that has one column or one value per line.
Angle brackets (<>) cannot be used in alert placeholders. Placeholder values containing these characters are rejected.
