Each publication in iNewsletter has its own subscription list. Sometimes, you may want to do a bulk import (such as at the start of the school year, to add new families and staff), or export everyone out of iNewsletter to update your own records.

Importing

Importing is done with a CSV file (similar to an Excel spreadsheet) which contains 1 or 2 columns. The first column must be the email address. You can optionally add the subscriber's name in the second column, to help identify them in your list. Any duplicates will be ignored, so it is safe to import the same list multiple times. Email addresses will not be added multiple times.

If your CSV file contains email addresses that have previously unsubscribed, they will remain unsubscribed. They will not be resubscribed unless they re-subscribe themselves or you manually re-subscribe them.


To import a CSV file

  1. On the Dashboard, click the Email Subscribers link on the left bar

  2. In the Options menu in the top right, choose Import from CSV

  3. Click the Upload CSV button in the popup window that appears and find your CSV file

  4. The file will upload and be processed instantly, and then you will see the results of the upload

Exporting

You can export a list of email addresses subscribed to iNewsletter if you want to. The list is exported as a 4 column CSV file: Email, Name (if set), Status and Source.

To export a list of subscribers

  1. On the Dashboard, click the Email Subscribers link on the left bar

  2. In the Options menu in the top right, choose Export to CSV
