Adding Contacts Manually

Of course, you can populate your contacts database by yourself by creating contacts manually. It is a simple process, and the newly created contact will not be aware that you have added them to your database.

Importing Contacts

If you have a big list of contacts you'd like to import into Funnel, you can do it in two ways:

1. IMPORTING CONTACTS FROM A CSV

Funnel can import your contacts from a comma separated values file, as long as it's formatted in a specific way, here's an example of how your CSV file should be structured:

Name, email address, company 

You can import any CSV file into Google Sheets/Drive, Microsoft Excel, or Apple's Numbers app and make the necessary changes required by Funnel.

This is how your spreadsheet should look like:

Once you edit the spreadsheet you need to export it into the CSV format again, and you're ready to import it into Funnel.

Now that you're ready to import the CSV into Funnel, head on over

to the contacts section, and hit the Bulk Options button in the header, and choose the Import contacts option. After that you will be prompted to upload a file.

Once the file is uploaded Funnel will load its contents into a table filled with the contact's you're about to import, and here you can pick and choose which ones you want to import, and which ones you don't. Contacts that already exist will be shown but greyed out so no duplicates will be created. There's also an Add All Contacts option if you have a lot of contacts and don't want to click too many times.

2. Importing contacts from Gmail or Google Apps contacts

In deal you want to import contacts from any Gmail or Google Apps account, you can choose this option instead of CSV file. All you need to do is hit the Bulk Options button in the header, choose the Import contacts option, and once the popup opens instead of uploading a file, click/tap the Import From Gmail button.

This will take you to a Google-hosted log in dialog (similar to the one you used when you signed up for Funnel).

Once you log in to the Google account you want to import contacts from and authorize the Funnel Contacts app to access your contacts, Funnel will load a table filled with the contact's you're about to import, and here you can pick and choose which ones you want to import, and which ones you don't. Contacts that already exist will be shown but greyed out so no duplicates will be created. There's also an Add All Contacts option if you have a lot of contacts and don't want to click too many times.
