Importing contacts

0 Votes

I've tried to import contacts from an excel file and it's only importing 29/33 contacts. Why?

Hello @ChristaC54 ,


Without seeing the file itself, I can't really speak for certain what the issue is. However, based on your recent import/export activity, you actually imported 30 new contacts, then you've repeatedly updated 3 or 29 contacts that already exist in your account. Based on that, I'd surmise that some of those 33 you're trying to bring in are the exact same contact.
