Start in Tessitura, create your Extraction



In WordFly, import your Extraction


Import your Extraction under Email > Email Campaigns or Subscribers > Lists. After you import your list, you can use it in an email campaign.


Follow these instructions for importing your Extraction outside an email campaign under Subscribers > Lists. The process is the same within an email campaign under the Subscribers tab.


1. Go to Subscribers > Lists.


2. Select Create an email list.


3. Select Use a Tessitura List.


4. Select Use an Extraction list.


5. Give your list a name and click continue.


6. Select your Extraction list from the available list ID's.


If you can't find the one you want double check the list is in Tessitura, click "Refresh" the data to pull the latest changes in Tessitura.


7. In section 2, select your Extraction download.

Note: The data you see in WordFly for importing an Extraction is populated by reading Extraction & Download meta data from the impresario_cci database in Tessitura. This data is not checking the file system in the Extraction output/pickup directories defined in T_Defaults.


8. In section 3, map your list fields to corresponding data fields in WordFly.

  • This step is how WordFly knows what data to import for your Data Fields. Data Fields must be mapped for personalization in your email design to work.
  • To map fields, select "Change" on the far right. Then the middle column (WordFly Fields) will display all available data fields. Select the appropriate one that matches the data in the far left column (Your Fields).
  • WordFly will automatically map as many fields as possible based on the last time you imported a list with similar fields.
  • You must map the WordFly "Email" field before you'll be able to continue.
  • Be sure to map customer number, source number and download number so that email responses go back to Tessitura for this list.


9. Click Start importing.
