If you have an existing emailing list and would like to send out product updates and announcements to them via email, you are able to import your user list to your AnnounceKit project 💌
To get started, go to the People tab, and select the Import button next to the Export button.
After that, it will bring up the Import window where you can upload your CSV file and preview it.
This preview will help you to check the column headers, see if they are listed correctly and the total items that will be imported.
💡 There will be five rows given for you to check the correctness of your file.
After confirming your file, you'll get to the window where you can match your column headers to your user attributes.
It will automatically give you the three default fields to match at first. And then, if you wish, you can also match other columns in the file to the fields you added to AnnounceKit in Segmentation.
💡In this step, if there is an invalid email address in the file, the system will give you an error that those rows won't be imported.
After matching columns to user fields, you'll get to the next window where you'll again have a chance to check the latest version of your file and confirm the submission of your file before starting to import.
After selecting Next, the Complete window will open, where the importing of your file starts and you get a success message. Congrats! 🎉
You can import your users into AnnounceKit easily with due regard to the following requirements,
You can only upload .csv files. Any other type of files like .tsv, .xls, .xlsx, .xml, or .txt cannot be uploaded.
You can upload max 3 MB files one at a time. If you have a file than this, you need to split it into several files.
You need to provide headers to your columns for data to be uploaded successfully.
You shouldn't include any invalid email addresses in the file, otherwise, the invalid rows will be removed from your file.
❗️❗️❗️You must set up your own email domain address via customer providers like SMTP and Mailgun, to start sending emails to your uploaded list of users. See more about custom email domain setup here 👉 Email Settings
