Is a first and last name required in contact lists?


Is a first and last name required in contact lists?

My yahoo contact .csv import is a mess. The only thing that loaded correctly are the email addresses. I've been sorting it for days but am getting tired of it. I have about half of the first and last names in the proper column. Does Constant contact require a first and last name? Can I leave them blank? It's not important to me.


Hello @BillH6964. Thanks for coming into the Community! First and last names are not required when uploading a file of contacts into your account. These fields would be useful if you wanted to include a greeting into your campaign. The only field needed for a contact to receive email communications from you would be an email address.
