You can import leads to your Leads and Contacts account by including the lead's info in the body of a specially-formatted TEXT email.
To Import a Lead
Send a specially formatted ** PLAIN TEXT** email to the designated email address (do not send html or formatted emails as these will fail).
Structure the data in your email EXACTLY as follows:
TO: Email Address (changed March 31 2020)
Send a specially formatted email to: email@example.com
Leads will be imported to your account and assigned to a User based on the User's Import-API Key, or the User Referral ID or a Round Robin if specified in the email.
Subject can be left blank - it will be disregarded
Body of email:
The following block of options needs to be present somewhere in the body of the email.
See the Lead Import-API Field Reference for a full explanation of every field.
### BEGIN CREATE CONTACT ### # api_key:c7kuiamxrqg-cfw65r3bbhytybh # email:firstname.lastname@example.org # first_name:Bob # password:password # phone:303.225.7600 .... add more fields as needed ### END CREATE CONTACT ###
After the email is sent, the processing of the lead can take up to 60 seconds.
- If the lead import is successful
You should see the new lead in your Leads and Contacts account, and you should also receive a new lead notification alert.
- If unsuccessful
You should receive an email from the system showing what the error is, and a copy of the lead import email you sent.
