Formats supported for import

Excel files

You can import files in XLS format. The XLS format is also often marked as Excel 1997 to 2003 (PC) or Excel 92-2004 (Mac).

The system doesn’t support the xlsx file format. Simply save your file as an XLS file.
Info

CSV (comma separated values)

You can also import files in CSV format. The separator (e.g. semicolon, comma, tab stop) and encoding are automatically detected during the import process.

Importing files

Import

To import the XLS or CSV file, go to Subscribers and select Add New Receiver in the top right. Simply select the recipient list, click on Import and follow the Import Wizard.

Allocating the custom fields

The last step of the import process allocates the custom fields. You need to tell our system, for example, which record includes the first or last name. The first three records are each displayed. To assign the fields use the drop-down box to the right of each record. The e-mail address is automatically recognized and assigned. You can then start the import.

Why weren’t all of the records imported?

The import automatically checks for duplicates and syntactically correct addresses. If your recipient list contains fewer recipients than the import file, the problem could either be duplicate or incorrect addresses. The Import Report provides information on the message system in your account.
