Your contact database will become the hub of your movement.
Start by importing all information you have on your community, in CSV format (comma separated files).
(For example: Electoral lists, census files or internal databases)
Contact our teams if you have any questions about the format of the file or the correspondence between the fields in your old database and those in Qomon.
If you have a contact database file, this is an important step that will save you time in your actions.
1a. Remember to de-duplicate.
The likelihood of having some depublicate contacts when importing from multiples sources is high. Make sure to consolidate your depulicates in our to start with a clean database on your Qomon space.
