Managing your contacts in DISCO

DISCO allows you to manage your Contacts so you can easily add all the people you work with, keep their information up to date, view their activity on the Playlists you share, and add notes to their profiles (that will be viewable by anyone else in your DISCO). You can also add and manage any writers you work with.

Adding Contacts

1. Adding a single contact

Anyone you share playlists with will automatically appear in your Contacts list, but you can also add contacts manually. To add a single contact, select Contacts from the left sidebar, and from the Contacts page, click Add new contact

In the Add new contact window, enter your contact's information. Name and Email are required for most Contacts with one exception: if the contact is tagged as a Writer.

Optional: Add Tags to your Contact.

Available Tags include: 

• Label

• Publisher

• Supervisor

• Writer (Name and Email are not required. Additional fields will appear so you can add their Publisher, Acts, and Performing Rights Organization, also known as PRO. For more information on managing Writers, refer to our article on managing writers).

• Other

You can also type in the field to manually create a Tag.

Click Add contact.

2. Adding multiple Contacts

If you would like to add multiple contacts at once, you can upload a CSV file of your contacts into DISCO. To do this, select Contacts from the left sidebar, and from the Contacts page, click Add new contact

In the Add new contact window, click the blue link to Import a contact list.

From the Import contacts from CSV window, drag and drop your CSV file, or click to browse your files. 

IMPORTANT! To ensure a successful import, every contact must have a Name and a unique Email. Below is a good example of a properly formatted CSV:

Once your file is selected, click Next.

On the next page, you can preview and update the mapping of your spreadsheet columns to the Contact fields in DISCO. If your spreadsheet column names correspond with DISCO's supported fields, they will be pre-filled on this page.

If not, you can select a column name from each drop-down to map them correctly before importing.

Once your columns are mapped correctly, click Import.

After a few moments, you will see this message once your contacts are successfully imported.

Newly imported Contacts will now show on your Contacts list:

Searching Contacts

To search through your Contacts, use the search bar. You can search using data from any of the fields (Name, Email, Company, Phone, Location, Tags).

This will bring you to their contact page, where you can see their Details, Tags, Notes, Mailing Lists, and Activity.
