Importing / Exporting Your Contacts


Dooster’s contact import feature allows you to import your existing contacts for use in your Dooster account.

You can do this by exporting your existing contacts from your current database or application into a CSV file.

You can do this from any contact manager such as Outlook, Thunderbird and so on. There are many guides to help you – please see below for more on this.

Once you have this file ready, you can import it by going to Contacts, clicking on the Import button and selecting it in the appropriate file field.

Organize your contacts / address book into columns with the following headers:

“First Name” “Last Name” “Title” “Company” “URL” “Email” “Phone 1” “Phone 2” “Phone 3” “Phone 4” “Street”, “City” “Province” “Postal Code” “Country”

Note: you must use the “” “”s

Notes on Importing Your Contacts

Country is an optional field

If you experience any errors importing your contacts data, please ensure

  • you have the correct number of fields (Don’t add any).
  • if you leave the header fields in the CSV file make sure each header is enclosed in “double quotes” eg “First Name”, “Last Name” and so on
  • if you leave the header fields in your CSV file then make sure to check the “Ignore Header:” option.
  • any fields you leave blank will show as blank on the contact card
  • make sure you’ve uploaded a CSV file

Please note that the import mechanism will overwrite any existing contacts with the same name.


Use the export button to quickly produce a CSV file. You can then upload this into any other software.
