Setting the No Bulk Emails (User Opt Out) when importing with CiviCRM

Posted by: pctutorials  :  Category: CiviCRM

Perhaps I didn’t look hard enough, but if you’re try to set the contact’s communication field of No Bulk Emails (User Opt Out) using the bulk CSV import tool, the correct value to use is an integer. 1 for yes. 0 for no. The default export from Adobe Business Catalyst for the same field is a true/false (boolean) value. A quick find and replace in excel or text editor can remedy this quite quickly for a bulk import. Anyway, might save someone else some time on this one.
