How to bulk import multiple contacts?

Tue, 13 Sep, 2022

Contact information is required to make it easier to add recipients while sending documents for signing. If you have previously added the recipients to your contacts, it would be simple to auto-populate them. You can add contacts one at a time or in bulk. Importing contacts in bulk allows you to add more contacts at once and saves time. Using CSV, you can import contacts in bulk.
