From the list of headers on the left, select the one you would like to map first. It will be highlighted green when selected, like the screenshot below.

Misc. Information

  • The only column that must be mapped is the Phone Number column. All other fields are optional, mapping additional fields will keep them organized when you export your results after running your call or text campaign..
  • You can map multiple Lead Phone Columns. This is beneficial if you have landlines and mobile in separate columns and want to target all the numbers.
    • We recommend mapping every column that contains a phone number. Even if you list organized them by type, our system will additionally do a real-time lookup to determine the type of number it is. You don't want to miss out on contacting numbers because it was placed in the wrong column!
  • Only the first few rows from your spreadsheet will be loaded on the right side of the page. This is normal and is done to reduce load times.
  • The columns on the left cannot be renamed. These are preset by RoboCent based on customer feedback for the most requested fields.
    • If you have a column on your spreadsheet that doesn't match up with a column we provide, you can still map it. It will simply be incorrectly labeled in your reports when downloading your results but can be renamed locally once the results are downloaded to your computer.
While the Phone List Scrubber is very advanced and uses real-time data to cross reference the provided phone numbers with active databases, it can't catch every bad number. There are several reasons why a phone number may be unreachable and not all are reported to us providers. We do our best to ensure our Scrubber is working as intended to remove as many inactive, invalid, deactivated, and malformed numbers as possible to save our customers every penny.
