Sales reps can save time and eliminate typos by using the Salesforce1 app to import contacts from mobile device contact lists into Salesforce. This feature is available only in the Salesforce1 downloadable apps.
|Available in: both Salesforce Classic and Lightning Experience|
|Available in: All Editions|
In Salesforce1, navigate to where you create contacts.
Tap Import from Device to open the device’s contact list.
Select a contact.
To associate the contact with an account in Salesforce, go to the contact record in Salesforce and add an account.
When importing contacts from a mobile device, these fields are mapped from your device’s contact to the Salesforce contact.
- Home Phone
- Mailing City
- Mailing Country
- Mailing Postal Code
- Mailing State
- Mailing Street
- Other Phone
In some situations, mappings from the local device don’t map as expected to the Salesforce1 contact record.
