When importing contacts manually via csv, I can import contacts that only have a phone number (no email), but when we import them through the API, it requires an email. Is there a workaround for this so I can import contacts who do not have an email via the API?
So long as you have either an email address or a phone number, you should be able to add a contact via the API.
Contact must contain at least one item in email_addresses or phone_numbers and country_code is required if region is specified.
Yeah, creating a contact does not require an email address to be used…it is very rare that it is a good idea, however, given that this is one of the few ways available to uniquely identify contacts, but there are some out side the norm cases.
Got it. Thanks Tom and John!
