Welcome to the TextMagic Contacts management introduction video.
Organizing your contacts with TextMagic is very easy and saves you a lot of time.
Let’s quickly take a look at the Contacts section in the TextMagic Web app. There are five tabs in the Contacts section:
When it comes to adding many contacts to TextMagic, it is convenient to import them from a .CSV or Excel file. To do so, click the New Contact button and then select Import multiple contacts.
In the first step of the Import contacts flow, you can choose either to import contacts from an Excel or CSV file or to quickly copy and paste numbers. We recommend you select the first choice, as it makes your import process more flexible.
In the second step you have to select whether all your numbers are from the same country, which would mean TextMagic would automatically add country codes to these numbers if needed.
In the third step you need to match the contact fields’ names with the data columns of your Excel file.
After this, the import process will begin. Once it is completed you will see the import results.
Your lists are displayed on the Lists page. If you want to share a list with your team members, just click on the Actions icon and select Share this list with Sub-accounts. But please note that all your sub-accounts will be also able to edit and even delete the contacts in the list that you have shared.
If you want to import specific contacts into relevant lists automatically, you should do the following:
You can also manually move and copy contacts between lists.
By clicking the Filter button and checking or unchecking the desired Custom fields you can also choose which columns to display by default in your Contacts table.
If someone replies with a stop word, this contact will become unsubscribed and you will see the special Unsubscribers list in your Contacts section. All your future messages to this number will be rejected by TextMagic, and you will not be charged for them. If a contact has unsubscribed, the only way for him or her to re-subscribe is to reply again with a subscribe word.
Sometimes it can become so busy that you realize that you have too many lists. To avoid distractions, you can simply hide the unneeded lists without deleting them. This way you can focus only on the lists that you work with and at the same time keep all the data on your account.
TextMagic allows you to store as many contacts as needed for no extra fee, and you manage your contacts using Web App, Desktop App, TextMagic API and Mobile Apps.
