When you transfer your contacts from the BoomTown export file to the "Command Contact Import Template", you will need to know how the fields in these two different systems match up.
- If you use the "Command Contact Import Template", you will notice BoomTown does not have information for some Command fields. You can manually fill in any blank fields in the "Command Contact Import Template" for those fields to import to Command.
- If Command does not have a field that is in BoomTown, you can create a "Custom Field" in Command. Manully add that information after your contacts have been imported. Click here to learn more about creating "Custom Fields".
- Leave any field blank on the "Command Contact Import Template" if you do not have data in that field. For example, do not enter "N/A".
