We just added the possibility to import your contacts from CSV – the universal file format that Excel (and pretty much any software) can export to. It means you can easily get your contacts into 8am (and if you are still keeping them in an Excel table – you definitely should!).
Do not worry too much about the format of your file – it will let you map your fields during the import. Plus there are a couple of examples we supplied. It will even let you import custom field values (just make sure you add the custom fields in 8am first).
You can find the link to the importer in the “settings” menu on the top. For details about the supported fields, check the Help section.
Email us if you have any troubles with the import.
For some time now, we have been working on a new product, and today we are proud to reveal it!
It is called 8am – a contact management tool with address book, calendar, events, tasks and team discussions. 8am is designed to help you start your morning more efficiently with all information at your fingertips.
With 8am you can:
- Maintain an address book of all your contacts with custom fields, relevant notes, files, etc.
- Manage personal and team calendars with events, tasks, reminders, etc.
- Customize your team access rights
- Locate information quickly via Dashboard and real-time Search
As the name implies, we designed 8am to work as a companion to our popular project management tool called 5pm. While 5pm is designed to handle projects of different sizes, track time and manage workload, 8am is designed to handle client details and calendars. You can import your 5pm users and contacts (clients) into 8am and see how you can use these tools side by side to get more done from 8am to 5pm!
