  9. NOTES
    • OnePageCRM allows to import both companies and people from Highrise. In Highrise when a person is created with a company name, a company is created automatically as a separate entity. 
    • If Highrise contacts have assigned tasks already in Step 4: Preferences > Apply Next Action text and date, only contacts without a task in Highrise will be assigned your preferred Next Action and date.
    • Contacts are not imported when:
      • Contacts have no Last name or Organization (Company) name.
      • Contact/deal/task is private and not visible to you.
      • Contacts have already been imported in the past.
    • The user who completed an import can undo it within 24 hours. To undo go to gear icon > Import and Export > scroll down to Import / Export history section and click Undo import.
