Personal Contacts Import - Field Population Issue

I imported my contacts from a CSV file from a file that originated from our company's QuickBooks file which was exported to Excel. I changed all of the field names to agree with the contact fields in RingCentral. I then imported successfully (or so it appeared) with no error messages. However, the "Business Address, Business Address2 and Email" fields did not populated under my personal contacts. Any suggestions as to why or what I am doing incorrectly? Thanks!

It's a little hard to say, but here's what I would suggest trying.  Instead of editing the column headings in the Quickbooks file,  export the customer list from RingCentral, then copy/paste the data in the colums from the QuickBooks file into the RC exported file. Then import that updated file.  This will assure there are no errors in the column headings and everything maps over correctly.

Let us know if you still have problems.

Yes... If you go to Personal > Edit Contacts, and then scroll down you'll see a Delete All Contacts button.
