Import your Contacts into DropSend

DropSend makes it easy to add your contacts by importing them via a CSV file. Most email applications can export a CSV file (comma separated) of your contact list.

Create the file using the following syntax: {First Name, Last Name, Email Address, Company Name}.

Once the file is created log into your DropSend account and click on the “Contacts” tab. From here look for the “Import contacts from CSV file” area and click on the “Browse” button to select the CSV file you created. Next click on the “Import Contacts” button, this will import your CSV file into DropSend. On the next screen select all of the contacts you wish to import, if you want to choose them all – click on the topmost selection box. At the bottom of the page click on the “Import Contacts” button. That’s it!

Users and Contacts Within the Dropsend Business Plan

We have recently divided Users and Contacts into 2 separate entities within the Dropsend Business plan.

We now have 4 different kinds of Users:

1. Internal User: can send/receive files + online storage but cannot add/edit new user
2. Admin: is an internal user, but can manage the user
3. Owner: is the user who registered for the account and can do everything
4. External User: can only send/receive files.
To manage the users, you have to click on Users (next to Contacts). Please note that only group Admin or Owner can add new users.

This means you can create a list of people you commonly email and now not have to enter each email address separately to send them a file anymore.

We’ve increased the number of days to download a file

We’ve just increased the number of days that you can download a sent file, from 7 to 14!

This means that when you send a file to someone, they have a full two weeks to download the file before it expires and is deleted from the DropSend server. We hope you enjoy this new added flexibility.
