how to import tags

on 3/8/13, 11:18 AM 1,772 views

How do you import tags. When trying to import contacts, validation says that the tags in the import don't exist but i can't find a way to import them before hand.

When you try to import just the tags list into customer import and select tags as the field to import you get the same message "tag field doesn't exist".

I found that I can select import partner tags under address book, but when you just that import there is not field listed as tags to select for the import. Is the tag field called something else for import purposes?

You have to import your tag first with import button at tag menu:

"vente/configuration/carnet d'adresse/partner tag"#in my (french) version
"sale/configuration/_________________/partner tag"#home made traduction

And then import your contact.

Created a tag manually and then exported it to see what the field was named. It is Category
