How do I change the name format for contacts I have just imported ?

You may import contacts into your database and then realise that the salutation option is not what you require.   You can easily change them all using the Bulk Processing function.

  1. Create an extract to identify the imported contacts.
    In this example, we have simply used the date that a contact was added:
  2. Click on Bulk Process from the Extracted Records menu
  3. Bulk Processing
    Select the Name format (Env/Salut) option then select the New name format from the drop down list.   Take note that that ignore locked name formats should be unchecked – contact Gestalt support if you believe that you need to use this.   Click on Update format when ready.   Check the contacts to confirm the required result has been achieved.
