To import a contact list, please follow these steps:
1. Hover your cursor over the Maropost logo, and click ‘Contacts’. While on the contact list index page, you’ll notice multiple options below a contact list; export, import, contacts, edit, delete, and refresh counts.
2. Click ‘Imports’. There are three different ways to import contacts into a list, which are described below:
File Import: Choose your .csv file from your computer to upload contacts to a list. There is a maximum size limit of 150mb for using the ‘File Import’ option.
FTP Import: After setting up your FTP imports (click here for details), you can select this option to upload contacts to a list using our FTP server. There is no file size limit for FTP upload.
Automated Import: Details coming soon.
**In your .csv file, email is the only mandatory field for importing contacts.**
3. After clicking ‘Next’, you will be shown the contact mapping page. Here you will select which fields from your .csv file will be matched with your previously created fields on the Maropost app.
On the contact mapping page, there are 3 check boxes on the right side:
(i) Import new contacts: This option imports new contacts only.
(ii) Update existing contacts: This option allows you to update the existing contacts in a list.
(iii) Do not trigger workflow campaigns: This option will prevent a workflow from triggering the contacts involved in this list.
4. Once everything is mapped correctly, click ‘Import’. You can track the progress of the import from the bell logo along the top of the page.
**You can also set a data workflow to import contacts into a list.**
