Hi Mark. What file type are you trying to import them from? I have had this problem in the past when trying to import contacts and it was caused by an unsupported file type and/or an incorrectly formatted file.

Trying to use a CSV files. The files has just under 5000 lines which could be the issue. When I upload only 100 it works but I have to map each line to the contacts in SM

Can you try 500 at a time and see if that works? There may be some limitation in SM.

We're looking into this. There is definitely some lag and delay in importing, as well as some oddities with mapping fields.

I can get up to 1000 to work before it crashes the browser did this on multiple connections and browsers.
Mapping is also a issue

Hi Derek,
Do you have a ATA for the fix? Client is waiting for his contacts to be uploaded. I can do 1000 without it crashing but they don't map.
Pressing accept all only added the display name and doing them individually still only does the display name

Any fix would be in the next minor release. However, we can get you a pre-release build prior to that if need be.

Will it be this Friday? A pre release would be best.

Hi Derek, I have installed the latest version on a test site and trying out the import which has worked this time.
When importing I have the option to map the import to the field. In the document I have Email and Work Email but went mapping there is only one email option. If I import both as email will it over right or add both as separate emails? Is there away to say which one is work and which is home/personal?
