How-to Import Your CSV or Excel File
To import your data, visit the Companies, Deals, or People list view and click on the down arrow next to the Add new Company/Deal/Person dropdown > Excel or CSV
Upload Your File
On the next page, you'll be walked through some basic best practices to make sure that the file you're uploading is prepared for import. After making sure you're ready, click the "Upload file" button to select your CSV or Excel file to import.
When you import people, you can choose to assign certain attributes to everyone in the file in Step 4:
- Person Type (Contact or Lead)
If you've assigned these within the spreadsheet itself, the spreadsheet data will override any selections made in this step
Map Your Fields
In this step, you'll make sure the data in your sheet is matched to the right field in PipelineDeals. On the left, you'll see the name of the column header. In the middle, you'll see an example piece of data from that row. On the left is a dropdown menu that lets you pick which field in PipelineDeals to match this data to. The system will take its best guess based on your header name as to where it should map, but if this is wrong, you can change the selection using this menu.
You are required to make a selection for each column. If you do not want to import a column in your file, select "Ignore this field". Once you make a selection for each column, click "Next".
If you're importing people, you can also enable duplicate checking in step 6, which will look for identical email addresses in your account and in the file you are importing. If duplicate checking is enabled, people with duplicate email addresses will be considered invalid entries and will not be imported. You will be notified of the invalid entires by email when the import is complete.
In the final step, click on the Import Now button to complete your import. Your import will process in the background, and we'll send you an email when the import has completed.
If you have invalid entries (for example, duplicate companies or people), you'll be emailed a link to a spreadsheet listing those entries, along with the reason that each entry was invalid. Click on the link to download the spreadsheet and view the invalid data.
