Firstly, export the Schematic design:

I followed the video, but when my schematic loaded in Altium, some nets were not connected. Like for example, I had a net named "VREF" that is connected to three different ICs but after importing to Altium, some of these nets are removed and left with net names like "NetIC_8". Any suggestions on how to fix this issue?
