Updating a field

There is one field in our form in which the value / content may change after an election. Right now this field needs updating in several hundred contacts, and I would think it could be done en masse. If so, I cannot find how. Please tell me I don’t have to open every contact in which this field needs updating!

Hello @MichaelR9494 ,

 

If you need to update a particular contact field for several contacts at a time, you can just upload a file that includes the contact field needing updating. Importing a file with different information for a selected contact field will result in it updating the contacts accordingly. If all you need is the one contact field updated for all those contacts, then all your file needs to contain is the corresponding email address and contact field info, since email addresses are what denotes a unique contact.
