We spent a bit of time in our Introduction to the Import Data Process training videos chatting about how the Import Process works as well as some general advice on how to perform Data Prep. In this article, we're going to take a deep dive into how to Format your Membership Data.
- Don't feel like completing these steps yourself? No worries! We also provide Data Formatting and/or Data Importing as Professional Onboarding Services. You can reach out to us at email@example.com for details on all of this!
- Not sure where to start with your spreadsheets? There is an Excel Template at the bottom of this page that is built to suit Keela's Accepted Fields.
- We recommend importing your Contacts and Membership related-Transactions prior to importing Membership Subscriptions.
|Contact Type||Whether the contact is a Company or Individual||By default, Keela will import a contact as an 'Individual.' If the contact record is for a company, write 'Company'||Company|
|Origin ID||Keela's unique ID for existing contacts OR an ID that you provide from a previous CRM||When importing new data for contacts that already exist in Keela, you can add the Origin ID to allow Keela to match the new data with the existing record. If you imported your own Origin ID to Keela, we will keep that number in the background, so Keela can match any future records with that ID||NFDM8KXX4mvm2GsRP|
