10to8 offers a variety of tools to help you keep track of your customers and effectively manage their data. This guide outlines various ways to manage your customer data with 10to8.
To get started, head to the 'Customers' tab in the left-hand menu of your account.
Note: depending on your business sector, the 'Customer' noun can differ. Our support team can change your customer noun for you upon request. The following customer nouns are available within 10to8:
How to Import Customers
We understand that migrating to a new appointment management system can be a lengthy task, especially when you have a significant amount of existing customers.
10to8 provides you with the ability to import all of your existing customers by uploading a spreadsheet, which should help to make your transition to 10to8 as smooth as possible.
To begin importing customers, head to 'Customers' > 'Import Customers'.
If you haven't already, you'll now need to prepare a spreadsheet containing your existing customer information. In order to upload properly to 10to8, the spreadsheet will need to be in XLS/XLSX format.
The spreadsheet will need to contain the following fields, in this specific order:
Note: your spreadsheet must contain these fields in this particular order, otherwise the information will not be properly imported into 10to8. For that same reason, please don't change any of the field names (i.e. don't change 'Phone' to 'Phone number')!
Once your spreadsheet is ready, click 'Upload Customers Excel File' to import your customer data.
Once your spreadsheet has been uploaded, you'll see your customer records under the 'Customers' tab within your account.
Note: if you're seeing blank customer records missing information, we recommend deleting the upload and adjusting your spreadsheet. If the spreadsheet is formatted exactly as described in this guide, it will import information correctly. If you're struggling, our friendly support team will do everything they can to help you.
How to Export Customers
If you'd like to export your customer data, you can use 10to8's reporting tool to do so. For more information on using the reporting tool, click here!
It's also possible to export a single customer's data from 10to8, which is useful in the case of GDPR data requests. To do this, click on the name of that customer under the 'Customers' tab. Scroll to the bottom of the page, locate the 'Actions' section and click 'Export data for Customer'.
How to Merge Customer Records
Sometimes, returning customers may enter slightly different details each time they book with you. As a result, duplicate records are created. To help keep your customer records organized, 10to8 allows you to merge duplicate records.
To do this, start by locating the duplicate records within the 'Customers' tab. Once you've found them, click the downward arrow next to the '+ Add Customer' button.
Then, click 'Merge Customers'.
You'll then be prompted to select the customer records you'd like to merge. Select them by clicking on the checkbox next to their names.
Once you've selected all the records you'd like to merge, click 'Merge [X] Customers' and the duplicate records will be merged into one.
How to Delete Customer Records
To delete the record of a single customer, click on their record under the 'Customers' tab. Scroll to the bottom of the page, then click 'Delete Customer'.
To delete all customers, click on the downward arrow next to the '+ Add Customer' button and select 'Delete All Customers'. Your browser will ask you to confirm your choice -- click 'OK' to confirm and all of your customers will then be removed from 10to8.
How to Change Customer Language Preferences
If you'd like to change the language in which your customers receive their communications, you can select a preference on their behalf, directly from their record within 10to8.
To do this, locate the customer's record, then select the desired language from the 'Language' drop-down menu. Your selection will be saved automatically.
How to Use Customer Tags
10to8's customer tags feature provides an easy way to filter your customers. As well as searching by name, you can use the 'Search' bar under the 'Customers' tab to search for customers according to their applied tags.
To apply a tag to a customer, head to their record and locate the 'Tags' field. Enter the tag name, then press Enter (or click 'Create tag' in the drop-down menu that appears). If a tag already exists, it will appear in the drop-down.
The applied tags will then appear underneath the customers' names in your customer list.
To remove a tag from a customer's record, click the 'X' next to the tag.
