Bulk add contacts?

How can I bulk add contacts? I've got a bunch to add and they're all SharePoint users already.

Thank you for your question.

The last version (1.2.7) creates contacts automatically when:

- User opens the help desk for the first time
- User sends an email to help desk

Thus, in most cases you don't need to add contacts manually.

There is no ready to use solution to bulk add contacts yet, but the next version of the help desk will have a tool to do it. It is in our roadmap. I can' provide you exact due date, but it will be within about 1 - 1.5 months.

For now, if you have PowerShell skills, you can write your own script for bulk contacts creation. As contacts list is just SharePoint list, you can add new items programmatically using SharePoint API.

If you don't have PowerShell skills and can't wait for the next release, request our paid support. Just send a message to support@plumsail.com to request estimation.
