Import distribution lists

You can import multiple distribution lists using a .csv file. The columns in your .csv files should correspond to the distribution list data fields in the 
BlackBerry Workspaces
 administration console (distribution list name, member names).
You can add new users to a distribution list and add or update user data by importing updated .csv files. However, you cannot remove distribution lists from 
BlackBerry Workspaces
 by deleting them in the .csv file and then reimporting it. You can delete distribution lists in the 
BlackBerry Workspaces
 administration console only.
  1.  In the left pane, click 
    Central Management
  2.  Select the 
    Distribution Lists
     tab in the right pane. 
  3. Click 
    The Import Distribution List window opens.
  4. If you have already created a .csv file that contains the new distribution list data, click 
    Select file
     to browse to the .csv file and select that file. 
  5. If you would like to create a .csv file with the new distribution list data, click 
    Get template
     to download a convenient .csv file with the column headings defined and the table rows blank. 
  6. Enter the user data in the appropriate columns, including the following information:
    • Distribution list name
      : The name of the distribution list.
    • Distribution list members
      : List of all members of this distribution list. Individual users who are members of the list are identified by their email address. List members should appear one per line. Distribution lists may also be nested within other distribution lists. In this case, the distribution list is identified by name 
  7. Click 
    Import
     to import distribution list data from the .csv file.
