What format do my mobile numbers need to be in?
The following mobile formats are acceptable:
You can have a mix of these in your database, our system will convert them. Please ensure there are no other symbols or characters in the mobile field.
Does the platform change all uppercase names (FIRSTNAME) to normal case (Firstname)?
No. You will need to run a formula across your database to amend this prior to your contact import. (in Excel, the formula is =proper())
