You have setup your event, it’s time to send invitations. Navigate to your event detail page and click on the plus sign in the box titled “Invitations”.
The invitations modal pulls up a list of existing contacts that you’ve already added to your account. If you haven’t added any contacts yet, you have the ability to add them now. You can add contacts one by one, import them from Google, or import them by using a spreadsheet.
Adding contacts to invite one by one
If you wish to add your contacts one by one simply enter a first name, last name and email address for each contact you wish to invite. By now, you’re noticing the “Available contacts to invite” list being automatically populated. For each contact you’ve added, a check mark appears next to their name by default which signifies that you would like to invite the selected contacts.
Importing contacts to invite
We offer two ways to import contacts. You can import your contacts from a spreadsheet, or, if you have Gmail, you can import them directly from your Gmail account.
Importing contacts from a Spreadsheet
Preparing your spreadsheet for import involves a few easy steps:
- To import your contacts from a CSV file, please make sure your column headers are structured and in order as follows: FirstName, LastName, EmailAddress.
- Save your spreadsheet as a comma separated CSV file. Click “File”, “Save As” then choose “CSV *(Comma Delimited) (*.csv)
- Now that you’ve saved the file, click “Browse” and navigate to the file you saved, select the file you saved, then click “Import”.
- Select all of the contacts you wish to import and click “Import Selected Contacts”
Importing contacts from Gmail
After clicking “Import Contacts”, click “Choose Google Account” beneath “Import from Google contacts”. You will be able to log into your Gmail account and it will pull up all of your contacts. Choose which contacts you would like to import and click “Import selected contacts”.
