What's the news?
You can now upload hundreds of addresses in a couple clicks, thanks to our latest new feature. (Many of you have been asking for it...) It's especially handy for big events, such as:
Wedding invitations or save the dates
‘We’ve moved house’ cards
Christmas and holiday cards
Thank you cards
And, of course, it’s just easier to send any card once you have everyone’s address in your Touchnote address book.
How does it work?
The idea is simple: rather than adding addresses one at a time, you can use a spreadsheet to add lots of addresses to your address book in one go.
To do this you'll need to use a CSV spreadsheet. If you don't know what CSV means don't be worried by the acronym. CSV is a type of spreadsheet that is a widely used for exporting information like contact details and addresses. If you use Outlook, Gmail, Apple Mail or most other email clients, you can export a CSV of all your contacts.
Uploading CSVs available via touchnote.com only - not via our apps. Click here to try it in your address book.
What do you need to do?
If you're a bit techy and already have a CSV spreadsheet of your addresses, sign in to the Touchnote website and head to your address book. You'll see the new Upload Address Spreadsheet feature when you get there.
Make sure it’s formatted correctly
When you upload a CSV spreadsheet of addresses the structure, will need to be similar to that used by Touchnote. A quick way to find out is to upload your CSV and see how it looks. If there are small errors, you can make edits.
However, if the structure is completely wrong, the easiest way to correct it is to download our sample spreadsheet, then copy and paste the addresses from your existing spreadsheet into it. Then upload your new spreadsheet.
We included our address as an example, to show you how to format your addresses. Feel free to send us a postcard :-)
What if you keep your addresses in a traditional address book, not in a spreadsheet?
Good news! You can still use a spreadsheet to quickly upload a large number of addresses.
Step by step guide:
1. First download the sample spreadsheet and open it up in MS Office, or a similar program.
2. You'll see 8 columns (as above), each corresponding to a different part of an address. You'll see the example address that we've included to make it easy to see how the structure works.
3. Now enter each of your addresses as a separate row in the spreadsheet, using the same structure as the example address.
4. Then save the spreadsheet and upload it.
Just like that! Huzzah!
