Planning to import data? Import Settings is where you can add extra information to all companies and contacts.

More than one match in the import file?
If Upsales finds more than one company or contact that matches an instance in your CRM, you can either skip it from your import file or make a duplicate (which can cause problems with your data).
For example: You want to import a company that already has two versions in the system. The import creates a third version, rather than try to guess which version to match.
Tip! When you choose "skip row", no duplicate is created and no data from that row is imported.
