Contacts - Import Personal Contacts | RingCentral

« Go Back


SummaryIf you have a long list of contacts, you can import that list to your RingCentral account using a CSV file. This is very convenient because you can add all the contacts at the same time, instead of manually creating a new contact for each person you want to add. To import your bulk contacts, follow the steps in this article.


Contacts - Import Personal Contacts list




You will need to Export your RingCentral extension's Personal Contacts list first. This file will serve as a template. You will then have to use the same csv file (exported_adress_book.csv) that you have downloaded from your account to list the contacts that you want to add into your RingCentral extension's Personal Contacts list. When adding your contacts, the sheet should have the same format and tabs. DO NOT CHANGE, ADD or DELETE columns from this file. After listing the contacts, save the csv file using another filename.
