How do we insert data in to the "RefText" coloumn under the "Used In" section for component and assembly information? The "Used In" information references only the assembly where the component (or assembly) lives, but for multi-level assemblies it would be nice to know which machine (or high-level assembly) that component is apart of. I would like to use the RefText coloumn to reference the highest-level assembly.

The refText is edited in the assembly editor. That's the window where you can add/remove components/sub assemblies in an Assembly

Is there a way to bulk import the refText coloumn in with a parts or a BOM import? At the moment it looks like the only way to do this is to manually edit through the assembly editor.

Yes. When viewing the Assembly, you can click on "Build Partslist/BOM from CSV". One of the columns in the CSV should contain the data for the Reference column. Other columns is the CSV file would contain the Level, Part Number, Revision, Description (optional), and Quantity.
