aNinja offers different ways to create leads in your account. Importing leads in a CSV file is one of them. Before the import, you want to sanitize the contacts file to ensure a proper mapping. The correct mapping of leads’ data to aNinja fields saves your data in the right place which makes searching for it easy.
Mapping leads data to aNinja fields
- For the bulk import, go to Settings > Bulk Import
- Select the contact’s file.
- Now, map the data to aNinja fields:
- The contact name is a required field
- You can either map it to one field or join 2 fields in case the first name and last name are saved in 2 columns in your CSV file.
- It’s important to map the data in your contacts file with the right aNinja fields to be able to find them in the right place in the lead view.
You can map all the data you have to all the lead fields in aNinja. You can even create custom fields if they’re not already there.
- Contact_name: is a required field and it’s essential to complete the import.
- Primary contact’s email: contact_email1. You can also add a second email (contact_email2).
- Primary contact’s phone: contact_phone1.You can also add a second phone number (contact_phone2).
- Here we recommend choosing the mobile number to be the primary contact phone.
- For the custom fields, you can create them immediately when doing the mapping if they were not listed among the fields.
Where does the imported data appear?
