So - here is the deal - we have an excel sheet with hundreds of contacts - with which email they would like set as bulk mail. While doing an import, I see no option to indicate bulk mail preferences - any suggestions?

Civi 5.10, Drupal 7


The API CSV import extension using the email entity has a way to import these.enter image description here

It looks like you can match on external ID.

  • So I have the CiviCRM contact ID - I want to mark an email as use for bulk mail - so I have selected Email Contact (Match using external identifier) and chose the column with the Contact ID - and I chose the column with the email to match with Use for bulk mail. Then I get the error: Missing required field(s) : email – themak Feb 13 '19 at 17:51
  • I do not know why contact ID field is not available. The actual email should use 'email' field and then it is '1" value for 'Use for bulk email'. – Andy Burns Feb 13 '19 at 18:11
