How do I upload my Instagram Followers?

Note: Must log into your Instagram account on a desktop or laptop computer (not on your phone or tablet device)

Here are the step-by-step instructions for importing your Instagram Followers into Teamzy.

1. Download Contacts from Instagram

  1. Log into your Instagram account on a computer (not on your phone or mobile device)
  2. Go to your Profile and click on on the Cog Wheel icon to the right of your name.
  3. Choose Privacy and Security
  4. Under Data Download, click Request Download
  5. Select JSON format
  6. Click the button to request your download
  7. You’ll receive a link via email to download your file when it’s ready. It can take anywhere from 10 mins to 2 hours to generate the file.
  8. Click the link and log in to authorize the download
  9. Your download will be a zip folder. First, double click to unzip/extract, and then click to open it.

2. Import file into Teamzy

  1. Log into Teamzy
  2. Click Add Contact at the top of the screen and choose Bulk Import Contacts
  3. Click the Choose/Select File button
  4. Find the folder from IG (it will have your IG name as the title) in your Downloads folder
  5. Select the file called followers.json

Important Note: Instagram only shares the Instagram “handle” of your contact. They do not share names or other contact information. Importing your IG followers may create duplicate contact records for some of your contacts if you already have them in Teamzy by their full names.
