Import your followers into the Popmenu database to get the most out of Popmenu's tools and consolidate all communications into one platform.
Preparing For The Import
In order to import your followers, you will need a CSV file of your data. If you have an Excel file you can easily save the Excel file as a CSV file (Click here to learn how to do that!)
You are required to confirm that all followers opted in to receive communications from you. If your document contains any followers who opted out of communications they must legally be removed from the document before proceeding with the import.
Popmenu currently collects the following information to import into our database:
✔ Email Address
✔ Full Name
✔ First Name
✔ Last Name
✔ Phone Number
✔ Favorite Location
You do not have to match every available field in the import. You can match whichever fields you have data for in your CSV file.
Any other fields are not eligible to import into the Popmenu database at this time.
Steps to Import Followers
Open your Document and make sure that the fields you want to import are clearly labeled in the column header.
In the example above, 4 Fields will be imported into the database: First Name, Last Name, Email, and Favorite Location. Your document may have more or fewer fields than the example outlined above.

Importing the Followers
In your My.Popmenu.com dashboard, Click Communications > Followers
Click on the Add Follower Dropdown > Click Import Followers
Drag and drop the CSV document where it says Drop Imports here or click to choose
Match the Available Fields according to the fields on your CSV document
Continue matching all available fields:
Once all available fields are matched the next two steps must be taken:
→ When importing followers you must acknowledge that all imported followers originally opted-in to receive communications from your restaurant. This field is required.
If you have a list of followers and they opted out of your communications it is your responsibility to remove them from the list before importing them into your database.
→ You have the option to send a welcome email to imported followers
This smart message automatically sends a welcome to all followers who have been imported into the Popmenu database. This is an optional field.
Click Import Followers
Now that your followers are imported it's time to send out your very first email marketing message!
