Importing a contacts file in FirstClass
First and formost … When a contact list in sent to you (as with ANY file), be sure to save the attachment to a
location you will remember. Ie. My Documents, Desktop, etc.
While in FirstClass, Click on File, scroll to Import, Select Import Personal Contacts …
Browse to the location you saved the file to.
NOTE: Please be sure that IF the file sent to you was a CSV file, change the drop-down list to reflect that
you are browsing for a CSV file. (The default is VCF)
Next, the following Window will give you options to modify (or not) specific fields in the file. NOTE: This
list is in the “Order of appearance”, ie. The first column of the file will correspond to the first entry …
IF they DO NOT match up, then pick (in order) the items and change them to what they REALLY mean.
NOTE: If transferring from FirstClass TO FirstClass, then just click OK.
Once the import is complete, you should be able to use the contact list as you can any other contact in
