More Detail for Uploading Member Lists

Can you publish a complete list of the field names for uploading Member lists? For instance, I'd love to upload the phone, address, etc. of my members so that we can streamline management into one database, connected with this tool.

thanks for considering!

  • You can also create a second user to add more email address for one user.
    There are 2 ways to do this.
    1) You can add members one at a time by clicking on "Manage membership,
    lists & permissions" and then clicking on "Add a member".

    2) To make several changes at once:
    Export your membership list from "Manage membership,
    lists & permissions"

    Click on Manage membership, permissions & lists from your home page.

    Click Export member file, and then click Export CSV member file.

    Save a copy of this file to your computer in case you need to restore
    your membership.

    Make changes to your membership using another copy of your exported
    CSV file. You can add members by creating a new row and adding
    the fields you need to add. Be sure to include membership to the
    appropriate lists by placing an "x" under the list column.

    Save this file and import it into your account.

  • Hi Becky,

    The best way to add that information is to create a sub-group for each graduation year, and add the parents to the appropriate year for each child they have in the school. For example, you can create a "2018" sub-group for 6th graders and "2019" sub-group for 5th graders, etc.

    There are several benefits to adding the graduation years as sub-groups... one is that parents in those groups get their own group email address to communicate with other group members. You can read more about why use sub-groups here.

    Instead of a sub-group, you could also set up the graduation years as member list, which is like the Teacher and Volunteers list you have already set up in your account. Click here for information about the differences between a list and sub-group to help you decide which works best for you.

    Hope this is helpful!

  • Hi. I am the Mayor of Menan, a small town of 700 people in Idaho. I am looking for a mechanism to engage and communicate with Menan's citizens.
    I have read all of the Q&A. A lot of the questions seemed to deal wth delivery problems. But there are no posts in the last couple of years. Is the system still up and running? Or have the problems been largely solved?
    We currently have an old Listserv by Capalon that is dying over time. Can the recipient list be imported to Groupvine?
    We currently have the old Listserv recipient list and a newer list of addresses that we would like to contact. Is there an opt out feature? Thank you for your time.

  • Hi Mayor Haight,

    Glad to hear you found our support community!  Just to let you know, if you go to support.groupvine.com/topics, you'll see questions listed from most recent first.

    If you have a file, like a spreadsheet, of the email addresses in your list, then we can format the file and import the list for you, as well as set up other lists or groups you may need to communicate with and any new members you'd like to add to your account.  

    Every email has a footer with an unsubscribe link so recipients can opt-out of receiving emails at any time.  Note, once a member opts out, they opt-out of all emails sent using your GroupVine account.

    I see you've already set up a City of Menan GroupVine account, so feel free to contact me at support@groupvine.com if you have any other questions or if you need help setting up your account to start emailing!  

    Hope this helps!  

    Best,
    Robin
