I am trying to import a Google Apps Contacts list in csv file format. I go through the steps; it goes through the motions of importing the file, but no contacts are added. We're running CiviCrm 4.7.8. It's a trial run on a friend's Wordpress account. We get a System Status:Error message that everything's not configured yet e.g. No Cron Running. Any ideas?
That cron is not running is not affecting the import process.
Ideas - in no particular order:
- Perhaps your csv needs some formatting? Do you have columns for First Name; Last Name; Email adress and are they all in expect format? Email address should just be email address only (so separate columns):
Mary (in column 1) Smith (in column 2) [email protected] (in column 3)
I find that MS Excel does not always give me a correctly formatted importable CSV file... so I always use Open Office instead - just look and save
is the upload directory writable by the user the webserver runs as? Not sure where that lives in Wordpress; in Drupal it's files/civicrm/upload
