When you have a list of people that exists somewhere on one of your computer systems and wish to import it into the Grenadine “People” list, you can provide a CSV file and import that directly by mapping individual people fields.
The following fields can be imported into your event’s “People” list:
Prefix – The prefix to the name, for example, “Mr.”, “Ms.”, “Dr.”
*First name – This field is mandatory.
*Last name – This field is mandatory.
Suffix – Name suffix, for example “Sr.” or “MD”
Job title – Job title, like “Director”, “Marketing Assistant”, etc.
Company – Name of the company or the organization
Street address (line 1) – First line of the address. Example: 4529 Clark Street
Street address (line 2) – Second line of the address, for example “Suite 201”
Zip code or postal code
State or province
*email – This field is mandatory.
Registration number – A registration number for this event, if you have one (sometimes, you may have a registration number provided by a 3rd-party registration system)
Registration type – A type of registration. For example, you could put “Student”, “Advance-purchase”, “Exhibitor”, etc.
Unique ID – A unique number that represents this person in the 3rd-party system from which you are importing the data. If your system has a unique identifier, and you re-import this data later, we will not create duplicates for a person, even if part of the person’s name has changed.
Your file must be in a comma-delimited file format with an extension of “.CSV“. If your values contain special characters such as accented characters or Chinese/other foreign characters, please make sure that your file CSV is saved using UTF-8 encoding.
Here are two sample files that can serve as starting examples:
