Last updated: Aug 16, 2022
hi all! working on a dataset import right now and trying to figure out how to format my
file to account for references.
this is part of the schema i’m importing into, specifically wondering how I should format for the

            name: 'pressLinks',
            title: 'Selected Press',
            type: 'array',
            of: [{ type: 'pressLinks' }],
            group: 'press',

they are objects, here is the schema

export default {
    name: 'pressLinks',
    title: 'Press Links',
    type: 'object',
    fields: [
            name: 'title',
            title: 'Press Outlet Name',
            type: 'string',
        }, {
            name: 'url',
            title: 'Press Link URL',
            type: 'url',

Got it! I wasn't sure because of this:
trying to figure out how to format my
file to account for references.
For presslinks, they would need to be in this format.
 //...other fields
  pressLinks: [
       _type: 'pressLink',
       title: <your-title>,
       url: <your-url
    //...other pressLinks
