Overview: Large Scale Contact Update Import (TargetSmart)
User story: TargetSmart files contain information pertaining to wealth screening and are used for specific segmentation and prospecting projects. With previous updates, we’ve been able to import TargetSmart files through the Import Contacts screen, but there are limitations in the number of contacts a user can import through that screen at one time.. With the volume of the latest update (4.4M), we need FR Tech's assistance importing the data into Civi with the correct fields mapped.
Narrative of feature:

Please note that some of the fields in the files have multiple options listed. The columns to use to import the values associated with the Prospect custom fields are:
Additional note: the TargetSmart address does not include Supplemental address, so we need to indicate ‘null’ for addresses that previously had a supplemental address in their old address.
Where do you expect to find the data?
