If you have a lot of customers it could take you quite a bit of time to add each contact manually to your qiksms contacts list. Lucky for you qiksms makes it easy to just upload your contacts as an excel or csv file. You can also include additional attributes like first and last name, and personalized notes.
How to Import Contacts
Log in to your qiksms account and navigate to Contacts > Import Contacts.
You should see a screen that looks like this:
Before you upload your excel or csv file you just have to check that you have formatted it correctly.
For the file to be successfully uploaded the first column needs to be the First Name, the second column the Last Name and the third column the Mobile Number. You can add an optional personalized note as the fourth column. Also check if your file has a description row or not, and select either Description Row or Data Only accordingly on the import page.
You’re now ready to upload your file! Just go ahead and click the green button highlighted below and select your file from your computer.
Before you upload you can also either select an existing contact group to add the contacts to, or create a new contacts group by clicking the Add New group button. If you don’t specify a group the contacts will still be uploaded, just not assigned to any group.
Now go ahead and click Import.
Congrats, your contacts are now added to your qiksms account!
