- The Notify Me list must be published in order to add subscribers to it. If your list is unpublished you will get an error message, stating "Email subscription could not be added".
- If your import spreadsheet has the same user listed multiple times, you will get an error message stating "[number] users skipped during upload".
- You can only import an email address to one list at a time. However, users can subscribe to multiple lists at once with the Notify Me page (yourdomain/list.aspx).
- Importing subscribers will send a confirmation out to those being imported and they will not show in the list until they confirm. There is an option to bypass this via a prompt. If this option is not available for you, please contact us.
- Navigate to Module > Content > Notify Me
- On the Published List you want to add subscribers to, select Choose an Action > Subscribers
- Click Import Subscriptions
- Click Choose File in the pop-up window to upload a file from your computer
- Skip Confirmation Process: Bypass the confirmation email, but ensure that the users have already manually confirmed to receive communications
- Select and Open your file
- Click Import File to confirm your file upload
