How to import contacts in Front

There are two ways to import contacts to Front: 

  1. Use our contact API -
  2. Send a CSV file of your contacts to, and we'll import it for you

The CSV file may only contain the fields listed below. You can include more than one of each field with the number appended (email2, phone2). Here are some examples of the order in which your CSV file should be. 

  • name,email
  • name,phone,link
  • name,email,phone,group
  • name,email,phone,twitter,description,group
  • name,email,email2,phone,twitter,link,link2,description,group,group2
  • name,email,email2,phone,phone2



  • The minimum entry required is one of these: email, phone, or Twitter.

  • If no name is provided, then the name field in Front will be populated with the content from the first email, phone, or Twitter.

  • It is best for you to provide any phone numbers in international format already (with the + and country code).

  • If the link is a URL, then it will be clickable in Front.

  • Group is what you have on the left panel in the contact manager in Front; a contact can belong to multiple groups.

  • Extra columns and rows need to be removed.
