How to add additional subscriber fields in ConvertKit
If you're importing a list from another provider, you may have information about your subscribers that you want to come over as well, like Last Name, Country, etc. Now, you can import that information so it is stored within ConvertKit!
First, you want to create the fields you need in ConvertKit. To do this, click into any subscriber on your Subscriber's page.
Next, under the First Name Field, click "Add a new field."
You'll see two text boxes: one for the name of the custom field, and one for the input of your subscriber's information.
The names of the fields are completely customizable. Unless you decide to add them to your forms, these fields are also internal only, so your subscribers will not see them.
Click "Add a new field" for each field you would like to create.
Importing to your fields
Ready to import your multi-column CSV?
Head back to your main Subscribers page & click "Import Subscribers."
Add your CSV to the uploader.
Go down the list and select the correct column for the correct field in ConvertKit.
This is really important: You want to make sure to map your CSV columns to the correct fields. If you don't select a column, that information will not be added to ConvertKit.
Now your data is added to your subscriber profile!
This will work for new subscribers as well as existing. More information about Importing Subscribers here.
Please Note: If you import a CSV with information about an existing subscriber, that will override and replace the information you have stored in ConvertKit. This is a great way to correct names or issues in bulk!
