Contacts: Bulk Upload
The Bulk upload feature allows users to upload from a spreadsheet a large group of contacts. This can save a lot of time and is helpful when you already have an address box and adding these to a spreadsheet is a simple task.
Steps to bulk upload.
- Select the "BULK ADD" button
- Select "Download Template CSV" - this will download a file called "ContactTemplate.csv"
- Open the CSV in Excel (or a compatible spreadsheet program). You will need to add your Conatct details to the applicable columns - see the table below.
- Once you have updated your .csv file - save it and then select "Upload completed CSV file". This will automatically add Contacts for every row that you have added to the spreadsheet.
