Adding and Importing Email Addresses to Lists

You store your email lists in JangoMail’s database using the Lists section. Here, you create your own lists, each with its own customizable fields, and import your email addresses and other data.

Creating a new JangoMail List

  1. Select the New List link.
  2. Type in a list name for your list and click Save. The list name may include spaces.
  3. Click on the Fields tab and add in any related fields of information you will want to import. Click Add New Field to add fields and click on the Edit icon  to edit each new field. By default, JangoMail creates fields for EmailAddress, Submission_Date, and Modified. Field names may not include spaces or punctuation characters, as this can cause errors in the database. First Name and Last Name are very common pieces of data to collect. Field Names are like the column headings of a spreadsheet. They label the data you will be storing there. 
  4. Now you’re ready to move on to adding data to this list.

 

Manually Adding Members to a JangoMail List

  1. Click on the Members tab and then click Add New Member.
  2. Type that member’s data into the fields as appropriate. Click the Save button at the bottom of the pop-up screen. The member will be added into your list and will be displayed alphabetically by email address.

 

Importing Members to a JangoMail List – Just Email Addresses

  1. On the Tools quick link bar, click on Import Members under Members.
  2. You may either use “copy and paste” or select a text file (usually a .csv or tab-delimited file) as your source for data upload.
  3. Option 1: 
    1. Select by Copy & Paste. (If you have a text file, skip to Option 2 and choose by Uploading a File instead.). 
    2. Select Just Email Addresses. The screen will give you an input area into which you can paste your source data. Paste your data in, and click theImport button below the paste box to begin the import. You will receive an email confirmation when the import is complete.
  4. Option 2: 
    1. Select by Uploading a File.
    2. Click Just Email Addresses. You will be prompted to Browse to select your file (from a text only format like .csv or tab-delimited). Once selected, click the Import button beneath the Browse box to begin the import. You will receive an email confirmation when the import is complete.

 

Importing Members to a JangoMail List – Email Addresses and Other Fields

  1. Select your list from the Lists section by clicking on the Edit icon.  
  2. On the Tools quick link bar, click on Import Members under Members.
  3. You may either use “copy and paste” or select a text file (usually a .csv or tab-delimited file) as your source for data upload. 
  4. Option 1: 
    1. Select by Copy & Paste. (If you have a text file as your data source, skip to Option 2.).
    2. Select Multiple Fields.
    3. Select which fields you would like to import and drag them over to the Selected Fields box. Alternatively, you may click the Add All link to import all available fields.
    4. Click Next Step when you are finished.
    5. The screen will give you an input area into which you can paste your source data. Paste your data in, set the field delimiter, record delimiter, and text qualifiers to match your data content (see Note below), and click the Import button to begin the import. You will receive an email confirmation when the import is complete.
      Note: A “field delimiter” is a character placed within a text file to denote where one column ends and the next begins. The most common delimiters are the comma (a CSV file) and the tab (a tab-delimited TXT file). A “record delimiter” indicates when a new record of data begins. This is almost always Line Break – meaning that each line is a separate record of data. A “text qualifier” is how programs denote text field types from numeric ones. If you are unsure of either the record delimiter or text qualifier, leave the defaults unchanged.
  5. Option 2: 
    1. Select by Uploading a File.
    2. Select Multiple Fields.
    3. You will select the fields so that they match the original order of your data. Think of this as if your data were displaying in a spreadsheet and you are identifying each column, A, B, C, etc. To select a field, move it over to the column on the right. When you are done, the column on the right should match the order of your source file’s data. You may also click the Add All link to add all available fields.
      Important: The importer cannot skip columns from your source file. You will need to identify each column. If you have additional data in your source file that you do not wish to import, then delete it first.



    4. Click Next Step.
    5. You will be prompted to Browse to select your file (from a text only format like .csv or tab-delimited). Once selected, set the field delimiter, record delimiter, and text qualifiers to match your data content (see Note below), and click the Import button to begin the import. You will receive an email confirmation when the import is complete.
