How can I invite/add/import a large number of people at once to my space?

To invite people to your spaces faster and easier, use the “Import contacts (.csv)” feature to upload a CSV file to Kona. 

To access this feature, go in to the space.  Go to the Space Members section in the right sidebar and click the “Invite” link.  Click the “Import contacts (.csv)” link.  A pop-up screen will appear where you can select a .csv file with all the new members’ email addresses.  If the file includes the email addresses of people who are already members, Kona will not send an invitation.  The file can also contain more columns and information than the email addresses.  Kona will only use the email addresses information.  Note: CSV uploads are restricted to IE10+ and other browsers that are compatible with Kona.

After selecting all the members, you can add a personal message if desired.  Then, click “Send Invites”.  The new members will receive notification that they have been invited to the space.

    I tried to upload a ".csv" file containing email addresses and more columns (quite a few more columns) using the latest version of Firefox, but nothing happened. Now what? Have not yet tried with either IE or Chrome.

    Hi Allan,

    I just tested this on the latest version of Firefox and it worked for me. I'll open a support ticket with you so we can troubleshoot this.

    Thanks,

    Hi Christine.  I just uploaded from a CSV and while adding the users it showed that I had invited 300+ but on the people added to the group page it only shows 42?  Did I do something wrong or is there a limit?  Thanks!!

    Hi again...so the upload did work for multiple invites; it is just taking a while to process them.  Thanks!
