If you have customers stored in another CRM system, you may wish to migrate them to Eventive. Migrate customer information swiftly using Bulk Import People!

When you import customers - known as People in Eventive - every individual will receive an email with a custom message and instructions to activate their account.

How to Bulk Import People

  1. Select either People (located under a specific Event Bucket) or All Customers (located under Global) from the lefthand navigation menu of your admin dashboard.

  2. Click the Bulk Import People button.

  3. Select the Event Bucket into which you wish to import People.

  4. Click Download Template to download the import spreadsheet.

  5. Fill in all applicable customer data into the spreadsheet. The only required columns are Name and Email Address.

  6. Upload the completed spreadsheet by clicking the "Drop spreadsheet here, or click to select" space on the Bulk Import People page.

  7. Add an email subject line, email introduction message, and additional message to include in the email each customer will receive. For example, an explanation of the fact that you're switching to a new system.

  8. Click Preview Import to see a preview of all People that will be imported. If anything looks wrong, click Edit settings, adjust your settings, and then click Preview Import again.

  9. When you're satisfied, select Yes, I'm ready to import # people and send associated emails, click Start Import and the import will begin!
