Archive your contacts using a CSV or TXT file

One of the different archive options in Moosend lets you archive your email marketing email list using a CSV or TXT file containing your contacts up to 40MB in size. If your content contains any special characters make sure you upload a UTF-8 file for maximum compatibility.

To archive your contacts from a CSV or TXT file:

  1. In the top navigation bar, hover your mouse over the Audience tab, and then click Email lists.
  2. Click the name of the email list from which you want to archive members.
  3. In the menu, click Perform bulk actions.
  4. On the Choose Bulk Action page, navigate to Archive List members and click Select. 
  5. In the pop-up dialog box that appears, go to the CSV/TXT File option and click Select.
  6. On the Data selection tab, click Browse and select the file that you want to import.
    Note: If the separator used in your file is not a tab, a comma, a semicolon or a pipe delimiter, you have to enter it in the Enter a custom separator field.Snag_4a90fd.png
  7. On the Data Mapping tab, click each drop-down list and select the default Email field or a custom field. If you want to map a specific column to a field, click the Map to drop-down list, then click the field to use, and click Next.Snag_28cd50.png
    Note: If you have not mapped all the fields, a notification appears asking if you want to ignore any columns that remain unmapped. Click Ignore and continue.
  8. On the Notification tab, select if and how you want to be notified once the archive process has been completed. Select Apply to all email lists if you want the archive process to be applied to all your email lists simultaneously.  Click Archive when you are ready to start the process.Snag_4db7ff.png
