Upload error

I am trying to upload a contact list from a csv file.  


I'm receiving this error message:  Choose a file that was created by Excel (.xls, .xlsx), a Comma Separated Value (.csv), a VCard (.vcf), or a Text (.txt) file.

Re: Upload error

Hello @TammyS13,


Thank you for reaching out to the Community! I apologize that you are receiving that error message when trying to upload your file. Have you tried changing the file type to Excel instead?
