Importing & Exporting Clients


You can import clients to Privyr and export your Privyr client list to CSV, giving you full flexibility to transfer and manage your data wherever you need it. You can export clients and activities by date range, group, team member assigned, and more.

Importing Clients to Privyr

If you only have a few clients to add, you can manually create or import them from phonebook via the (+) icon on your Client List. You can also connect your Privyr account to lead sources such as Facebook Lead Ads, Google Ads Lead Forms, Website Contact Forms, and Zapier via our integrations to automatically add new leads from those sources to your Privyr account.


If you have many contacts to add, you can bulk import them from a CSV file into your Privyr account. You’ll have options to add all imported contacts to a custom group, and can choose to skip or keep duplicate contacts that already exist in your account.

You can bulk import contacts via the following steps:

  1. In your Privyr app or desktop site, go to your Account tab > Integrations Import/Export Clients tab
  2. Tap on Import Clients from CSV
  3. Download the sample CSV template and follow the columns and formatting to enter your contacts. Please note that there is a limit of 5,000 contacts per upload.
  4. Tap on Upload CSV and follow the instructions to preview your data, click on Continue to set your import preferences, and import your contacts:
    • You can specify the Date Added – All imported contacts will be marked as added on this date. This affects where they appear when sorting your client lists by ‘Date Added‘. You may click on Set it to now to set the date added to the actual time you’re importing the CSV
    • You can assign the leads to a specific Team MemberAll imported contacts will be assigned to the selected team member, or can be assigned to yourself and leave the leads unassigned.
    • You can specify to add the leads to a custom client group – All imported contacts will be automatically added to the selected group. Please ensure that the group already exists before uploading.
    • You can choose to Mark imported leads as New Lead – choose whether to mark all imported contacts as ‘New Lead’ or not
    • You can choose to skip importing duplicate contacts (whose phone number or email address matches existing clients in your Privyr account) or continue to import duplicates.
  5. Once done, click on Import. You’ll be able to immediately view and access the imported contacts on your client list.
    • If there were any contacts that were not imported due to formatting, deduplication, or other issues, you’ll be prompted to download the list of skipped contacts which will include the reason for skipping in the last column.

Exporting your Client List

You can export your client list and activities from Privyr to CSV format to view and edit the data in spreadsheet applications like Excel or Google Sheets.

You’ll have options to export all clients and activities, or just those that match criteria such as by date range, group, or team member assigned. The data will be sent to the registered email address on your Privyr account, with the option to add additional email recipients.
