Contacts can be imported in bulk to groups in the system using the import option. This feature allows you to import the contacts using a csv sheet just like in the import module.
Click on the ‘Import’ link in the left side menu to access the Import Area.
The sample csv file can be downloaded by clicking the ‘Contacts Import’ link on this page.
Click the ‘Select File’ button when you are ready to import your contacts. Browse through your system and select the file in the window that opens up.
After the file has been selected, you will see the fields required. Select the columns in the csv using the dropdown next to each field. You may also select which group they should be added to. After matching the fields with the csv file click on ‘Save Contacts’ to import them into the system.
