Importing contacts

If you are importing a list of people, import as Contacts. If you are importing a list of companies, businesses, or organizations, import them as Accounts.
If the list and contacts you are importing have an email address, there will not be any duplicates created because the system is designed so that only one contact can be created for each email address. This rule prevents duplicates from being created. Although, if your list is contacts without email addresses, new contacts will be created for the contact is already in the system.
