Hi, I am developing a website with Silverstripe 3.1.12 and find myself in a situation where I need to input a fair amount of data into a dataobject which contains several has_many and many_many relations. I feel it might be beneficial to utilize the burnbright/silverstripe-importexport module, and while the code snippets provided are understandable, I could really use a more comprehensive example on how to get started using this module, including where to insert the code (extension, dataobject, ModelAdmin...?) and how to write/update to related data objects. Is there maybe a more in-depth example or tutorial covering how to use this module? Thanks in advance for any and all help/suggestions.

Have you tried looking at something like for some extra clues?
I'm not familiar with the module, but I don't imagine it being all that much more complex than others. Hopefully the docs (and/or the tutorials) can help you to understand :)
