Kiwi Connect Q&A: How to Add Add Subscribers
Upload From A File
The file from which you want to upload contact information is referred to as the contacts file. This file must be a supported file type. For information about requirements for the file and its contents, see Add and Build Contacts Overview.
Preparing Your Data
Contact information must be in one of the supported file formats. If your contact information is in a different format, you may be able to export it. For example, if you are using a spreadsheet application other than Microsoft Excel, you may be able to export the contact information to a .csv or .txt file.
For your convenience, you can use the Basic Template in Microsoft Excel (.xlsx) format to prepare your contact information for upload.
Best Practice Tip: After importing all contacts in the .xlsx file, convert to a .csv file to upload
If you want to identify test contacts, in the contacts file, include a column named Test Contacts (or TestContacts). For each contact, type the value True for test contacts or False for contacts that are not to be used as test contacts.
