This guide will help you import CSV file containing contacts and import them to SendX platform. This is specially useful if you are moving to SendX from other email platform like MailChimp or importing your Google contacts list and so on.
Creation of list
Create a new list with name CSV Import list. Ensure that list type is Single Opt in. If you need any help as far as list creation or understanding its various options do check our Lists Guide
Importing CSV file
- Once done click on Upload Now option. Post that you should see contents of CSV file and drop down against every column in CSV. So you have to do mapping by selecting appropriate columns against email, name, company etc.
- Once completed you will get an email about number of contacts that have been successfully imported as well as the ones that were either duplicates or were invalid.
Importing contacts with custom fields
- Sometimes you have contacts with custom fields say address or phone number etc which you would like to import into SendX via CSV file. In order to do so create appropriate custom fields in SendX.
- Once you have created custom field and then going to List > Import Contacts should show the custom field which you just created in the drop down list. You can map the custom field to a column in the CSV file and it would get imported for all contacts.
