I’m mapping 3rd party listings from an old server to a new server so we don’t lose our sales history and ranking.

Rather then creating new attributes for every type of option (size, colour, etc) is it possible to name the attribute differently for each listing?

I can do this through Magento but I’m not sure how to import this value through Magmi. Please see the attached screenshot.

It might be possible to do that. There is a Magmi plugin called Column Mapper that might useful for this instance. In our tutorial Column Mapper has been discussed here:
