Checking the progress of your import via the API

If you use our API to bulk import your contacts then you’ll want to hear about an improvement we released last week.

Bulk imports can take a couple of minutes to process, so you may already be familiar with the GetContactImportProgress method to check the progress of your import. Previously the status of your import was either “Finished” or “Not Finished”, which could lead to confusion should your import be blocked by our Watchdog or if your data isn't in valid CSV or Excel format.

To make things clearer you can now check for “RejectedByWatchdog” or “InvalidFileFormat” to see if your import has been cancelled.
