Import Data into Close

Let's get started by importing leads into your Close account.

Which most accurately describes your current situation?

Please choose one:


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”. Make sure the first row in your spreadsheet is a header row (i.e. a row containing column names).

Assign Columns
After you finish uploading 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 right 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.
