I just notice when we import the leads, there is no option for the list either.
my developer just noticed it. we love the inboundnow it’s just needs some tweaks, that’s all :).April 17, 2018 at 12:45 am #132720
You might be busy or overlooked this message. Were still trying to figure out how to populate the list from the API. In addition to this, how to export my list then import it into another InboundNow. Because when we export the JSON file, the list do not export with it. This could really be pain especially if someone was to have lot of data and list. As they have to re-organize everything again. Not sure if there is a fix for this or something you can do easily, if possible, would be nice.

Hi some of our features could be more robust than they are. Currently we can only set the import list during the import:
The issue with exporting site list and tag data is that there’s no guarantee that the importing site will have the same tags/lists. I agree there is room for improvement. Such as creating the lead lists and tags if they do not exist, but it’s a power we don’t currently have at the moment.
A custom solution could possibly be developed using our PHP based API:
When you say JSON file, do you mean CSV file? We can export Inbound Pro settings as JSON format, but only settings. Leads and other data like landing pages, calls to actions, emails, those are not exported. The WordPress export tool should be able to handle these though.April 17, 2018 at 3:21 am #132727

When I refer to JSON. I mean you would think Inbound Now would export everything into json this means list, leads, forms, and the whole nine yards. This way if something was to happen. We could just import the json file and boom everything is restored like it was before. The process has bee simplified.
By the way, are you saying with the wordpress tools we can export all the list we have made, as I have like 30 list/categories? Then import this into another wordpress it will create the list?April 17, 2018 at 4:19 am #132734
There will surely be very good WordPress plugin solutions for exporting/importing category/tags/lists/and leads from one WordPress install to another because we are following WordPress standards by using custom post types for our leads and taxonomies for our lead lists, tags.
I’m not 100% positive without research that taxonomies are exported by the export tool.
The problem with including it all in a json blob is issues with scaling. Eventually we start seeming limitations with PHP, Apache, MySQL as a user’s database builds with leads and lead data and it takes longer and longer to generate the json file and then the file becomes so large it can’t be imported unless special conditions are set to the server.
Migration assets that work across the board are very difficult to develop and manage so right now I’m leaving it in the hands of 3rd party plugins.
I’m not sure what to recommend off the top of my head, but a quick lookup returns this: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-csv/
