  • There will be 2 contact listings with this export- this is expected behavior. It's due to the 2012 version providing bad mailing address information.
  • Exporting contacts with both templates gives a better chance of more contact information.
  • A unique problem with Timeslips exports is sometimes the exports will omit contacts. It may have to do with the way Timeslips database recognizes the contact, and if it was added after a certain date, it won't be included in the export as it's not recognized by the database. Please contact your Timeslips Support to ask them for a full contact listing if this occurs.
