When transferring your contacts from the eEdge export file to the Command Contact Import Template, you will need to know how the fields in these two different systems match up.
- If using the Command Contact Import Template, you will notice that eEdge doesn't have information for some of the Command fields. You can manually fill in any blank fields in the Command Contact Import Template, to have them import into Command.
- If Command does not have a field for information you have in eEdge, create a custom field in Command and manually add that information, once your contacts have been imported. Click here to learn more about creating Custom Fields.
- Leave any field blank, on the Command Contact Import Template, if you don't have information for that field.
