Import tools and methods for adding contacts to an account

0 Votes

When adding contacts is it necessary for each email address to have a name?  In other words, can you just add a list of email addresses or do you need to have both an email  address and a first and last name?

Hi @AMBL. You do not need to have any additional information included in a contact file upload beyond email addresses. However, if you plan to send campaigns that use personalization like a first name, you may want to include names during the import.
