Mapping contact info: Email addresses

NOTE: If you are exporting email address data and re-importing it in order to bulk update it, make sure you include the LGL Constituent ID  and the LGL Email ID in your export. When re-importing, ensure that you set up a mapping for these fields so that the bulk change you are making will occur in the correct constituent and email address record.

Important information

The key with email address data is to place no more than one email address per cell in any given column. The Flex Importer looks for the pattern of an email address based on the "@" symbol and dot (".") symbol. If there are multiples of either of these characters, the email address would be classified as invalid.

Required fields

Email address is required.

Special fields

None available.
