Creating an Import

Now click Import wizard then click the new import button.
Select your data source and then click next.
Map Salesforce fields to Campaign Monitor.
Immediately start the import, or set up a schedule for future runs or both.
Salesforce limits report imports to 50,000 records. If you are using Salesforce Professional list view import are not supported. If you set up the import wizard using a list view it will not update should the view be changed. To update an import using a list view edit and click through to save the changes.

You can permanently delete subscribers from a Campaign Monitor subscriber list. If these records are imported in any way either via our integration or directly they will be considered as new susbcribers.
By default, the import wizard only adds and updates records. But you can also enable replace and resubscribe features. The replace feature is visible here on the advanced settings page. Once enabled it will set records that are not in the import source to a status of deleted in Campaign Monitor.
The re-subscribe setting is an option found on our general settings tab. If it is enabled it will apply to all imports. To review the option please click here.
If you have mapped a field to Campaign Monitor that has a blank value in Salesforce. And you want this to also set the value in Campaign Monitor to blank. You first need to enable the clear blank value option.
A new Beta feature allows you to create a segment as part of the import wizard flow. This can be useful where you have a single subscriber list but would like to email only a few of those subscribers based on records in the import wizard. To make the feature visible on the import wizard, please click here to locate and enable the option.
Once the import completes:
1. A new multi-select picklist will be created in Campaign Monitor.
2. All the members of the import will have the value selected.
3. A new Campaign Monitor segment will be created.
If you have scheduled an import wizard you can optionally put an expiry date in. This will the stop the import from running again after the selected date.
This roughly translates to how many schedule import wizard jobs you can run at the same time. For most customers the limit far exceeds their needs, and therefore will never be an issue. If we detect that you have too many imports running at the same time and there are no slots we'll try again later. We also provide messaging should you have schedules overlapping.
But if you need a lot of scheduled imports there are some key things we'd suggest.
1. Try to stager the start time for imports if you have more than one.
2. You don't have to select every hour if possible try to leave wider gaps.
3. If you are running an import frequently check your source to make it as efficient as possible.
a. Only include the columns of data you are actually importing.
b. Consider using a filtter only include records that have changed recently.
c. Exclude records that have been opted out, or don't have a valid email address via filters.
If you are not sure how many schedule imports you have we have created a report to help. Please checkout the Subscriber Imports Report (Schedule) found in the Campaign Monitor for Salesforce report folder.
