Building a Contact List

To build a contact list for your class, create a simple survey (see below).  It is important that the survey headers have the following headers.  Gmail and other mail programs (Outlook, Yahoo, Eudora, MacMail, etc.) use these headers to import information into the correct fields in your address book
    • first name
    • last name
    • email address
    • home address
    • mobile phone
    • occupation 
    • hobby
    • organization 1-name
  1. Once the survey is completed, open the spreadsheet.  It will look the the sample table below
  2. Export the file as a csv (comma separated value) file.
  3. Import the csv file into your contacts list in gmail
  4. Make certain to add all contacts to a new group that identifies the group of people.  You will use this group to grant privileges in future activites.
