File to Import
: Allows you to type or browse to the location of your csv or text file that contains the contacts you want to upload.
: Clicking this button uploads your file so you can preview the information to make sure the contact data is in the correct field. For example, you would want to make sure the phone numbers are in the phone number field, contact names are in the name field, and the contact ID is in the ID field. If the data is not in the correct field, you can adjust your import file and re-import so it appears correctly.
Accept and Proceed
: Once you have successfully uploaded your import file, click the “Accept and Proceed” button to save your import. Once saved, you will be returned to the List Details page.

: Cancels all actions and returns you to the List Details page.
