Copy mail-addresses from spreadsheet into to-filed in webapp does not work.

  • If I have a spreadsheet with one emailadress in each cell, in a column. Then I can copy and paste that addresses into webapp/deskapp, but, they appear in the to-file as a single long email-addresse, where the individual addresses are separated with a space. webapp/deskapp seems is not able to understand multiple addresses separated with spaces, and needs semicolon.

    I would not have a problem with this, unless for the fact that if you try to do the same with outlook, it works just fine, you can copy&paste columns with mail-addresses from a spreadsheet straight into the to-filed in outlook, and it works.

    My users have ling lists of mail-addresses in spreadsheets that they when the want to send mail to many users in a group, urkh.

    Anybody have a good workaround for this?
    Other than adding a semicolon behind each mail-address before copy&paste.

    Hi Klausade,

    I have no workaround, but the corresponding ticket is:

  • This post is deleted!

  • @mcostan I know they can be separated with a semicolon, aka ; There is even a ton of how-to’s on the nett, that explain how you can add a semi-colon to the end of each cell, before you copy&paste, it’s actually very easy.

    But, and this is a big but, the users are used to “not doing that”, so therefor it’s a problem for them.

    @marty thanks for pointing out KW-664
