    Upload .csv File in this FORMAT

    Please refer to the above on the left as the standard format of the CSV file. The First Message Tag field is empty for Mohit Dua, it simply means this field will be empty in the contacts page as well after importing.

    The headers City, email and State are the Custom Attributes. Also, the mobile number is written with the country code and a '+' sign. All the other fields which are not in the CSV file will be updated automatically or will remain empty according to the field’s property.
