Duplicate control and connecting contacts to accounts
When the actual import starts it might take a moment depending on the number of accounts and contacts you are importing. Don’t worry. For every import you do Salesbox maps you imports to existing data to reduce the risk for duplicate imports.
Salesbox also makes sure the contact specified on the same row as an account automatically gets connected to that account in Salesbox.
If you import contain accounts or contacts that already exists, Salesbox adds any additional information to the existing account/contact that Salesbox finds in your new .CSV file.
Contacts and accounts inherit from each other
If an account has adress info given but not the contact on the same row, the contact will inherit the same adress info as the account. Salesbox also do the opposite, i.e. if the contact has adress info but not the account, then the account will inherit from the contact.
Multiple phone numbers and email addresses
You can add as many phone numbers and email addresses as you want to the same account or contact.
