Thanks for the response Jeff.
I’ve found that you can also import company records on their own including all of the custom fields set up for company records within the account.
But it just seems that I’m tackling the issue from the other side and arriving at the same problem in the middle, being unable to match contacts to companies en masse in an automated way.
If I import all of the company records and then import all of the contact records and choose the option to create new companies with the data in the company name field, will it create duplicate companies instead of connecting them up automatically? That’s the way I see it turning out.
So I looked at the data cleanup options and there isn’t anything for company records that I can find, which puts me at a dead-end. Do you know of a way to get all of the contacts and all of the companies into my app and have them linked up, by importing them using spreadsheets?
