I had a lot of problems importing a list from AirTable into Google Contacts.
The name and phone would import, but email would not.
So I found a workaround.
My email client is Thunderbird, and I have the TBSync extension installed with the Gmail connector. I kind of don’t recommend this, but, it works as long as I don’t rely on having my contacts upload to the server. I keep it mainly downloads, and life is good.
However, for this situation, we need to upload.
The Thunderbird CSV importer can handle any CSV file.
Unfortunately, T-Bird doesn’t do Google Contacts Labels. I needed to tag everyone with an organization label.
So what I did was import through both T-Bird and Google Contacts. I imported twice.
On the Contacts import, I labeled the new contacts.
On the T-Bird import, I made sure to get all the fields.
Then, in Google Contacts, use the Merge feature to automatically merge the duplicate contacts.
