Import Contact Data with custom fields

lawrence whittemore asked on May 2, 2019 19:21

Hello, I've created a custom field to my contact list, and have an excel file to important, but in the "map to" section I do not see the custom fields. Where can I update what fields it allows me to import to?

If you use the Kentico Import Toolkit, you can make map of the old contact and the new contact id. Then go back and do a manual import of that data later. I'm not aware you can use the contact import for custom fields. I belive it only does the starndard.

It looks like you can actually edit this. There is a Alternate form in the module class section for contact imports. It's not set to hide new fields so I am not sure why it didn't show right away. Might be something weird with our server set up. But after a system cache clear and some time the custom fields seem to show.

Good to know, I haven't dug into that very far but good to know.
