it seems strange that I need to bulk convert my data as excel and then import it.

that is something that should be native to pipedrive

does anyone else feel like that?

    Specifically, what did you want to do?

    had a bunch of organisations and people that i wanted to turn into deals - but i could not do that. pipedrive wanted me to either manually add every single deal or to in/export my data as excel. selecting organiations and bulk converting them into deals would save a lot of time

    I don't understand the use case. Why do you want to convert persons or orgs to deals?

    Hi @Mathias Fiedler !

    From reading your explanation I believe a more effective flow would be to create a deal linked to that person and/or organization. You always need at least a contact in a deal, that's why "converting" them is not an option in the tool.

    I believe this solution meets your end goal.

    I can add to this: we would like to convert Organizations to Deals as an initial step in our pipeline: identify target prospects. At this early stage, we target certain organizations to open conversations with, and we do this in bulk each week. The ability to convert a group of Orgs/People to Deals is a natural flow for us, and it appears to be for others as well. Thanks.

    Same issue. We have a heap of contacts that have been added but we're unable to attribute these contacts to a Deal by the looks of it?

    Hi @SNAusPac you can import those contacts into the deal as participants. Here's how.
