Bulk Import Profiles w/ Enrichment into Fetcher

Updated by Support Team

Bulk Import w/ Enrichment

Adding prospects to Fetcher has never been easier! Using Bulk Import, you are able to add profiles into Fetcher and have profiles enriched automatically. It also checks for duplicate entries in your Directory based on a unique email address to improve the quality of data within your Directory.

Fetcher enriches your imported profiles based on emails addresses. If Fetcher finds a matching email address in the Fetcher database, the profile will automatically be enriched with job experience, education, and skills.

Follow the below steps to upload candidates in bulk to the directory.

Best Practice - Each CSV file should be ideally less than a 1000 rows as Fetcher campaigns are limited to 1000 profiles/campaign

Steps to Import

  1. Navigate to the Directory, and select Download Candidate CSV Template from the three dot menu

  1. Open the file, and fill in your spreadsheet with values that relate to the column headers. Do not move or change columns headers, as this will result in a failed upload.
Save time and avoid importing inaccurate data by reviewing and performing any edits to your contacts before importing.

  1. Save the file on your computer as a CSV.
  2. Upload the file in Directory > Bulk Upload Candidates
  1. Rename your file
Pro-tip: Use a filename that describes the prospects in the import. For example, consider naming a bulk import of Product Managers as "Product_Manager_Import".
  1. Upload CSV
  2. View the status of the upload in the Directory > Menu > Candidate Upload Log, and review any errors by selecting and downloading the file.
  1. If necessary, correct the error that is listed alongside the prospect's information, save, and upload the file that contains the corrections.

After completing the bulk upload, these prospects will now be available for future campaigns.

What if there are errors?

If you view your Candidate Upload Log and find that an Import shows a status other than Successful, open the file and view the status column and message that populates next to each prospect.

Common error messages are listed below:

  • “Candidate already on the directory" - This means the profile already exists in your Fetcher Directory
  • "Error with uploading this candidate. Please submit another bulk import containing this candidate"
  • "Required field is needed for this candidate. Please add the required field and submit another bulk import file."
