In my csv I have a field named "Communication style", which I wish to map to the respective field in "communication preferences" for each contact in CiviCRM (formal / familiar).

Yet, while importing the constituents, on the "match fields" step 2, I don't see the "communication style" option in the drop-down.

Which is the way to do this matching?

From communication_style_id not fully supported in issues.civicrm.org:

Unfortunately, support for this field is not completed: We can enter it, export it and search after it using the search builder, and use it within profiles. However, it also should be implemented for:

  • Importing of contacts
  • Advanced Search
