How do I import contacts into the Address Book?

6.5. How do I import contacts into the Address Book?

To import contacts into your address book, after logging in to the Marketing Center:

  1. In the main menu, click on "Contacts".

  2. In the left column of the page, click on the "Import Contacts" button.

    Import Contacts

    Please click here for instructions on importing contacts from a file stored in your Dropbox account.
    Please click here for instructions on importing contacts from Gmail.

  3. You'll be importing your contacts into a new or existing contact group. Enter a new group name and click "Add Group", or click "Select Existing" and select an existing group name from the resulting menu.

  4. Click the "Next" button.

  5. Drag and drop a contacts file (.csv, .xls or .xlsx) onto the phrase "Excel or CSV file on My Computer", or click the icon labeled "Excel or CSV file on My Computer" to locate and select the file on your computer for upload:

    Excel or CSV file on My Computer

  6. The file will be uploaded and you'll see the column-matching screen.

  7. Now you'll be mapping/matching the imported columns to the correct part of the address book by using the menus where you see the phrase "Skip Column". For example if you see first names in the first column, change "Skip Column" to "First Name." Do this for each column. Leave the menu set to "Skip Column" for any column which you do not wish to use. (If the menu doesn't have a matching entry for a column, you'll be able to create a custom field for that column later.) Note: You must map at least one column. (The email address is a good choice if you want to match only one column.)

    Use the horizontal scrollbar below the list to scroll to the right to make a choice for each column.

  8. When you've finished mapping columns as described above, click the "Next" button in the lower-right.

  9. A summary of the import to take place will be displayed. Click the "Next" button to proceed.

  10. There may be a pause while the addresses are imported. When the import is done you'll be shown a summary of the import. Click the "Done" button to view the group you imported the new contacts into.
