Simply choose one of the above data import templates.  

2. Once you have selected one of the above data import templates just replace your headings in your own spreadsheet with the ones on the data import template.   Please note the headings must be exactly the same for the import to be successful.


3. The column called Categories is where you enter your tag group(s) just enter each tag name separated by a comma and NO SPACE – i.e. customer,south-west,new-lead (these are then automatically imported as tags within your CRM account and are used to segment your contacts into different categories).

Please Note:


  • You cannot change the names of any heading – except for custom fields at the end – you can match the headings here with the headings you have in your CRM account. 
  • You need at least a First Name or Surname or Company Name in place for the row / record / contact to be valid.
