Import contacts from a file

Note: Before importing contacts you first need to have connected your Voyzu login to Google Workspace.

This page gives you step by step instructions on how to import contacts from a text (e.g. CSV) file

Voyzu allows you to import contacts from one of your Google Contacts labels. If the contacts you want to add to Voyzu
are not in your Google contacts you will need to first import them into Google contacts, and then import them in Voyzu. Here are step
by step instructions on how to do this:

1. Establish a Google Contacts template file

Google Contacts will only allow you to import contacts in a specific format, with the
standard contact column headings.
The easiest way to get a blank file in this format is to select a contact or contact
label in your Google contacts and export it.

google export

Choose to export to Google CSV format. Doing this will create a file containing the contact(s) you exported, and more importantly the
column headings you need.

2. Populate the spreadsheet

Open this file and add the contacts data you need to.

3. Upload the spreadsheet

Upload the spreadsheet back to Google contacts.

Click the 'Import' button in Google contacts. Note you do not need to apply a label at this point. Do not
apply the #voyzu shared label to these imported contacts, this will be done for you by Voyzu

google import

A new label will automatically be created to hold the imported contacts

google label

You may be asked if you want to check for duplicates, this is good practice unless
you are sure your file has no duplicate entries.

4. Import contacts into Voyzu

Finally log in to Voyzu CRM and navigate to All contacts > Import. Select the Google Contact label
that holds your imported contacts and click on 'Import Contacts'. All contacts in the label will be imported into
your Voyzu master list, and added to all users who have connected their Voyzu login to Google.
