If you’ve uploaded a list today you’ll have noticed that we made some changes to the field selection screen in the list upload process. In order to make the process more clear we reduced the field selection method to a simple drop-down menu placed just above the column data sample, replacing our old scroll box of field names.
That’s not the best part though. Our favourite aspect of this upgrade is that field selections are now automatic. That’s right, so long as the uploaded file has a header row containing field names, we’ll automatically apply the matching name. No more scrolling and selecting.
If you’re not using header rows in your list files, they’re easy to add, just make the first row in the list a definition for each column. In the CSV sample below, the header row has been used to indicate that the fields in the file are email, first name, last name, state, and zip code.
"Email","First Name","Last Name","State","Zip" "email@example.com","Bob","Jones","IL","60604"
