Importing from a spreadsheet

We've made it easy to import your leads from an existing spreadsheet.

Lead Importer

Use the lead importer to upload a CSV or XLS file. Click on your profile (top left), and from the dropdown, choose “Import Leads & Data”. Ensure the first row in your spreadsheet is a header row (i.e. a row containing column names).

Assign Columns

After you upload your data, you’ll need to assign each column from your spreadsheet to a field in Close. To assign the data from your spreadsheet to the correct fields in Close, use the dropdown under "This column will be assigned to". The field will turn from blue to green once you've mapped a spreadsheet column to a field.
