Using CRM Import

An easy way to import customers and update fields on a 360 profile is by using our CRM import, find it here

Regular Import

You can use a CRM import to update fields directly on a 360 profile. In this case just add a column with email address, email hash or user ID as the identifier, followed by columns to update fields in your 360 profile. The field names should be an exact match of your profile field names in Squeezely.

Event Import

You are also able to import data into 360 profiles as events. In this case, add a column 'event' and specify any event name. Squeezely will consider each line in your file as a separate event and match this to your profiles based on the email address provided in the column for 'email', or alternatively based on the email hash or userID column.
