MagLoft Universal App can import your readers list from a Spreadsheet or any CRM that can export your readers to a CSV file format, and works for both readers with and without paid content access or a subscription plan. Here's how you can do it:

  1. Head to CRM > Readers and click on Import CSV.

  2. Drag your CSV or pick it from your directory. Make sure you’re using the CSV format template that we provided. When it's done, click the Confirm button.

  3. The process for importing your reader will start.

    It will take some time before your reader’s list gets uploaded into your UA. There will be a preview of the data that will be imported - you will get a success notification (created, updated, no changes) per individual record. If there's any error in the CSV file (invalid date or email address, for example), the system will flag it before proceeding with import. This gives you the opportunity to review your readers list and adjust where necessary.

  4. The Dialog for successful import will show and you can click confirm to end the process.

    IMPORTANT! If your CSV file does not contain your readers’ passwords, the system will auto-generate them for you. There will be a one-time option to download the CSV with the generated passwords when you import, so if you’d like to have a record of your readers’ password, this is the only time you can download it. You can use this information as variables in 3rd party email marketing services.

IMPORTANT! Please note when importing a reader list:

  • We only accept CSV format

  • You can only import up to 1,000 readers at a time:

  • By default, new readers that are imported will be marked as never logged on and have no last seen date. That means, they will not affect your reader limit calculation until they log in to your Universal App as a reader.

  • To update your reader’s subscription, please complete the changes on your CSV file and re-upload it to your UA.

Easy, right? Now you can import your reader list to your Universal App, so you can analyze some critical information such as:

  • When did they register as your reader?

  • When were they last seen reading your content?

  • If they actively read your content?

  • If they subscribed to your newsletter?
