Each line in the sheet must include data about one client, one type of data in each column. For example, a column for First Name, a column for Last Name, ... Address... Email... etc. Columns must line up (meaning, if column 2 is for last name, last names of all clients should be in column 2). You can import IIF formatted client list into CaseFox too. In addition, CaseFox can also import your client list from your QuickBooks Online account as well as from your Google Contacts.
