How to Import Data via CSV in UPilot?

UPilot offers two different ways to import your contacts, deals, and other data to the CRM. You have the option of importing a CSV file that you have, or alternatively you can import your data from other CRMs such as Highrise and Insightly as well. 

The import can be done both when you are creating your account, or at a later stage. During the registration process, you would be given an option to directly import your data in the CRM. 

Importing your Contacts and Deals

If you have your data such as contacts and deals stored as a CSV file, you can directly import it in UPilot. Here you can import all your data; for example both your Companies (or Accounts) as well as the people in the company in a single go with all the people being automatically linked to the company.
