Thanks for the reply! Couple Questions: The column names though it says they are required - in my testing are not required. If I omit - the company name but still add company_name and value to import data - the information is added for that contact. Are they required? How is it mapped or what are they used for. Noticed column names are now not related or used with addresses? How do we add a state that is outside US? When adding an individual contact you can add cell_phone or fax - is this not allowed for bulk imports? Thanks Again!

http://developer.constantcontact.com/docs/bulk_activities_api/bulk-activities-add-contacts.html There are several places where the example request body doesn't seem to match up with the documentation - the documentation states that any additional properties to be included in import_data beyond EMAIL need to be listed in the column_names array. however your example request shows "JOB TITLE" in column_names and "job_title" in the import_data. is there an implied mapping between spaces and underscores that isn't documented? - the documentation for column_names mentions "CUSTOM FIELD 1" (to 15), which seems to imply up to 15 separate custom fields, however the example request shows an array labeled "custom_fields". similarly, "ADDRESS LINE 1" (to 3) is shown under column_names, but the example request shows an array "addresses" of objects, each containing keys "line1", "line2", and "line3" (no space or underscore) Also: the documentation states that if the column_names array exists but is empty, only the email addresses will be added. however our tests seem to show that all fields will be added even when column_names is empty. Doesn't seem to be using column_names even though its required. Is this correct? Is there something that I am missing? Figured out that we had to use the property names in the import_data - example "job_title". Found here when adding individual contacts: http://developer.constantcontact.com/docs/contacts-api/contacts-resource.html. But added fax/cell_phone and they were not accepted? Also notice does not allow me to add State Other? What is the property name for that? Thank you in advance for the help!
