Hi Samuel!

We just added the feature to import leads via a csv file. Its in Github and will be part of the next packaged release.

Thanks,

Thank You Alan!!

I tried importing my contacts from gmail and received these results:

  1. Exporting my contacts as an Exchange CSV file first resulted in Mautic reading the file and my property fields but importing 0 contacts.
  2. Exporting my contacts as a Google CSV file resulted in Mautic reading the file, connecting the proper fields and importing all of my select contacts! Very happy, thank you.

Glad one worked for you :slight_smile: The importer is simply using the defaults for PHP’s fgetcsv which are

$delimiter = "," 
$enclosure = '"'
$escape = ""

But you do bring inadvertently bring up a good point that we should add those as configurable options to the importer for non-default formats.

Thanks!
Alan

I can’t import the subscribers in the list
how to do it?

Hello,

If I have duplicates, will Mautic ignore those? For example, I may have the same contact in 2 different lists when I’m importing. I want to make sure that this contact doesn’t get added 2 times so that they don’t receive 2 emails every time i send a campaign

Mautic will ignore the duplicate contacts
