How do I add Tags to contacts I import?

Tags (formerly known as keywords) are like labels that allow you to organize People, Companies, Projects and Deals. Tags are also helpful when you are trying to organize your contacts across many traits or characteristics and want to share this organization with your team on Cloze. 

Learn more about Tags here.

You can import contacts using a CSV (comma separated value) file. When you import your file you can also include Tags. 

1.) Prepare your import file

Add new columns to your spreadsheet to accommodate your Tags. You can add up to 20 Tag columns.

In this example the spreadsheet has several column headings that have been mapped to the equivalent name in Cloze so this CSV file can be imported. You will need to check and change each column of your original file to make sure it matches the appropriate import field in Cloze.

Importing Tips

  • All upload records (each row) must contain at least: 
    • an email address or
    • a mobile phone number or 
    • a name and phone number
    • a name and complete postal address
  • After you've prepared your CSV, upload a small sample file of 2-3 rows of contact information to make sure everything imported as expected.
  • Contact support by clicking on the orange "Help and Feedback" button below if you have questions, before you upload.
