Some of the contacts in pipedrive have multiple email addresses. When importing into Mailchimp, only the first email address is imported. I want to import all of them. Is it possible? Thanks

    You would need to manually do it

    Hi @Samo Jurdik !

    I did some testing on my end and it seems that Mailchimp only lets you list one email address per person. I tried importing a person with 2 email addresses, comma separated in a CVS file, and Mailchimp considered it an invalid email address and didn't import it; it only imported people with a single email address in each cell. I did this by exporting the file straight from the LIst View, and not using the "Export to Mailchimp" option.

    A workaround would be splitting that same Pipedrive person into multiple entries in the file you're uploading to Mailchimp and list them individually. I suspect that creating a custom field in Mailchimp where you list the second email address for the same person wouldn't work either. I suggest you reach out to Mailchimp's support for more details on this, as I'm afraid I don't have in-depth knowledge of how their tool works. 🙂

    Yes, I will need to split the person. I was worried this will come... :)

    Thanks a lot for your help!
