How to export Facebook Contacts to CSV in TidalWave
So you’ve amassed this amazing collection of contacts in TidalWave, and now you want to do something with them. You can either use TidalWave to promote to these people with SMS, Push Notifications if you’re utilizing a TidalWave Native Mobile App, or Email. Or you can export the data out to CSV.
To export the data out to CSV, simply pick whether you want to export the Responses or Fans out. Hit the Export Button.
Pick the application, start and end date to export. Hit the Export Button.
The file TidalWave Responses (10-10-14).csv will be downloaded. Just double click on this file to get access to it.
If you have multiple versions of the application, then TidalWave will export out all of the data to the best of its ability. For example, if you radically alter the structure of your app, then TidalWave will transpose the result fields into columns and display the results in a tabular format.
Conversely, you can import contacts into your TidalWave database as well. To do this, simply go to the Fans Tab. Click on the Groups. In the Groups Dialog that pops up, specify your contact file to import. Right now, we require display_name, login, and email fields. The phone field is optional.
