Poply makes it easy for you to upload a .csv file with email and/or phone numbers to quickly import contacts to your guest list.

- After you have created your event [How to create an invitation], you are ready to invite your guests. Once you reach the 'Guests' page, click the 'UPLOAD CSV' button.
- Click 'Upload File' and select your desired .csv file. Please make sure your file has columns labeled "first_name", "last_name", "email", and/or "phone" -- any other columns will be ignored. If using both email and phone numbers, create a separate columns for each. Phone numbers can be entered in any format but must be mobile phone numbers only for the invite to send successfully.
- Once your .cvs file has been uploaded, your contacts will appear on your Guest List. If adding more than 15 guests, you will be prompted to upgrade to Poply Premium [What is Premium?].
