Export allows you to save the basic contact info from My List to a comma-separated values (csv) file. You can import your list to a spreadsheet, *contact manager or database. Generate mailing labels, run a mail merge or send a group email! Fields included: Show Dates, Main Email, Promoter Name, Show Name, Attendance, Promoter Mailing Address, Show Director Name, Main Phone, Show Location City & State.
*A contact manager is a database program that is used to manage a list of clients/customers/contacts. Try a Google search like this: "best contact manager programs"
Follow these steps to export your MyList:
A) First, have the events you want to export saved to your My List. (Remember, you can only export 1,000 events total.) Click on "View My List" to see how many events are in your list. To delete events, click "Delete" at the bottom of each event summary.
B) When you're ready to export, click "Export My List." In the box that opens, select 'Save this file to disk' or 'Save to my computer' and click OK.
C) In the next box that opens, you will see the name of the export file, the file type, and where on your computer it will be saved. It is best to save the file to your desktop. Be sure that the file type is '.csv'. If it's not, use the drop-down arrow to change the file type to '.csv'.
D) Click "Save." The export file is now on your computer's hard drive (it might take a minute if your file has many events in it).
You may open this file directly from a spreadsheet program, or import the data into a contact manager or database program. The import command is usually under File > Import. Your software will usually ask you to choose the file type (.csv) and which fields you want imported where.
Please keep in mind that each time you export your My List, the entire list is exported -- not only new events you may have recently added to the list. To export just a few events, those must be the only events in your list.
