Send Bulk Referrals with Data Loader

Send bulk referrals using Data Loader to send one or many referrals to many different firms at once. You might have a long list of referrals to send to partner firms on Litify. Follow this guide to create a .csv file containing the fields and field values you want to load, insert the .csv, then determine field mapping.

1. Create a .csv file containing all fields and field values you want to map to the new referral records. Each referral record you add must contain the following required fields:

• Sync status set to NEW
• Email or phone field
• Client First Name and Client Last Name
• Originating Firm (your firm) and Handling Firm exactly as they appear on Litify
• Case State using the standard form:

-ex. "AL Alabama" or "NY New York" for Alabama and New York

• Record Type set to Outgoing Referral

Add any other fields you would like to automatically populate on your new referral records.

Example containing a few fields. Add a row for each referral record:
