Nimble enables you to import contacts from multiple sources including CSV files, vCard, social and email accounts, and third party integrations to start organizing your database and build stronger relationships with your customers.
If you haven't yet, visit the Contacts tab and click "Import Contacts". This will redirect you to Settings >> Networks & Imports where you can start setting up your account.

Once your contacts have been added to Nimble, they will display in the Contacts tab.
Adding a Person and/or Company
In addition to adding contacts in bulk through the Networks & Imports page, contacts and companies can also be created individually using the "Add Person" and "Add Company" buttons at the top of the page.
Start by clicking "Add a person". A window will pop-up with the option to add the person's "Name", "Title", "Company", "Email" and "Phone". Or click "Continue Editing" to add more information.
Selecting "Add Company" will provide you with the option to enter a name and domain for the company. Or click "Continue Editing" to add more information.
Automated Contact Filters
Nimble will automatically sort your contacts into their designated filters. To the left, you'll see the filters below:

Organizing Your Contacts With Tags
The quickest way to organize your contacts is by applying a Tag as they can be applied during import and in-app.
Once tags are added to your contacts and company, it will appear in the Tag section.

Organizing Your Contacts With Saved Segments
The Segment Search feature in Nimble allows you to search across many data fields to help you organize your contacts into lists. Once you've organized your contacts into lists, you can take bulk actions, send group messages, and set follow-up tasks.
After a saved segment has been created, it will appear on the left side of the screen. Saved Segments that have been marked as important will appear towards the top of your list.
Saved segments can now be shared with your team member. Once a segment is created, just click the padlock icon to share it with your team.
To learn more about creating Saved Segments, take a look at the following support article: Nimble Segmentation Overview
