Importing Email Addresses

Virtually every major email system (Yahoo, Google, and Hotmail) can export email addresses (Contacts) to an Outlook CSV format. CaringMeals can now import Outlook CSV files, so you can save typing and quickly invite all your Friends to bring meals!

Here are the steps:

  1. Export your Contacts to an Outlook CSV file. When prompted to save the file, choose your "My Documents" or "Documents" folder.
      Here are examples from the 3 major email providers:
    • Gmail

      • Click Contacts | Export

      • Select Outlook CSV and click "Export"

    • Yahoo

      • Open your Contact List and select Export

      • Click Export Now next to "Microsoft Outlook"

    • Hotmail
      Open your Contacts and Click Manage | Export

    • For other email systems, look for an "Export" function, and select "Outlook CSV" when asked for the format to export. If you have questions, please check with your email provider.

  2. Login to CaringMeals, Open the Plan you are coordinating, and click INVITE FRIENDS TO HELP. You will see this screen:

  3. Click the "Choose File" button, and select the file from step #1 in your "My Documents", "Documents", or whichever folder you saved the file.

  4. Click UPLOAD, and then you should see a screen like this:If you see one of the following messages:
    - File too big
    - No Addresses found
    - Not a CSV file
    Please correct your file, and try again.

  5. Enter a note to your Friends, and then click SEND!

This is another feature which was requested by our YOU, our users - Keep sending us your feedback and suggestions! We want to keep providing features which help you coordinate more meals, in less time, with less stress!
