Can I upload a spreadsheet of contacts to create my guest list?

Please download our .csv spreadsheet template here to get started. 

This template can be opened and edited using Microsoft Excel. 

Please note that non-English characters and symbols cannot be used in contact names. The following is a list of supported characters: English letters A-Z & Numbers, underscore ( _ ), space, period (.), ampersand (&), apostrophe ( ' ), hyphen ( - ), comma ( , ).

 

FORMATTING THE .csv SPREADSHEET

  1. Do not change the template column headers, otherwise the spreadsheet will not upload correctly.
  2. You may type or paste your contacts into the template.
  3. At minimum, the "Name" and "Email" columns need to be completed. It is ok to leave the other columns blank.
  4. Save your .csv spreadsheet.

RE-FORMATTING AN EXISTING .xls/.xlsx/Google SPREADSHEET AS A .csv FILE

At minimum, you will need a "Name" column and an "Email" column set up exactly as shown above.

Once your .xls/.xlsx spreadsheet is complete, save your file as a .csv file by going to File > Save As... Then under File Format: go to Comma Separated Values (.csv) and then Save.

NOTE: Please save your .csv files by following these steps, as simply re-typing or typing over a file's extension to change it (i.e. .xls/.xlsx to .csv) may cause upload issues. 

Or, once your Google sheet is complete, save your file as a .csv file by going to File > Download As  > Comma-separated values (.csv, current sheet).Screen_Shot_2017-10-25_at_7.16.14_PM.png

 

UPLOADING YOUR .csv SPREADSHEET

  2. On the Add Contacts / Upload a File modal that appears, click on the "Upload File" button.
  3. Navigate to where you saved your .csv file to select it for uploading. Please note that only .csv files can be accepted for uploading.
  4. The contacts will upload to your Add Guest delivery page automatically:skitch-152.png

NOTE: Any duplicates or invalid contacts will result in upload errors and remain in the modal until duplicates are deleted and/or invalid email addresses are corrected.
