Import Email Addresses into Invite

You can import email addresses only from a CSV file. Follow these links for instructions to create a CSV file from Hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail contacts. Click here for instructions from about.com on exporting your Outlook Contacts to CSV.

Important: Admins may only send 2000 emails at a time. Hosts and those using the Public Invitation page can only send 50 emails at a time. 

Before Importing, be sure that:

  1. Make sure all the emails you want to import are in one column.
  2. Make sure the first row is a Header Title like "Email Address".
  3. Make sure there are no spaces before or after the name of your header or any of the email addresses.
  4. If you are using Excel, be sure to do a "Save As..." and save it as a "Comma Separated Values (CSV) File".
