How Datafinder append works
Step 1: Prepare your spreadsheet.
Your spreadsheet needs to have all data on a single sheet, with only one Input type per column. For example, First Name will be in one column and
Last Name will be in a separate column. The file will need to be saved as a .CSV file.
You will need at least one of the following input types to run an append on Datafinder.
- Email address
- Phone number
- Postal address
Tip: Providing multiple Inputs will yield better results, so please include as many as you can. For the highest level of accuracy, please include First Name and Last Name as Inputs.
Step 2: Select your data source.
Select data source that you want to append data to. Your data can be imported from a CSV file, Salesforce.com or ConstantContact.com.

Step 6: Verify the content in the columns of your file.
Review the drop-down fields to verify that we correctly identified your columns or make corrections. Once verified, click the "Finish Button" to finish your append job.
Step 7: Download your appended file.
One your append job is complete, you will receive an email with a link to view your match report, purchase and download your newly appended file.
