I downloaded my contact cards in CSV format, how can I use them?
CSV files are text files that contain information, which are organized in rows, with each row separating data based on an identifier (usually a comma) and which can be entered in Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft Excel. To view the contents of these files you must download and save them to your computer and open them with an app. Although you can open them with “Notepad” or “Microsoft Word” (by selecting "Other coding"> Unicode (UTF-8) when opening), the best way is to open them with “Microsoft Excel”. However, if you open them by simply double-clicking on them, you will see that Greek does not appear correctly. To avoid this problem, first open “Microsoft Excel” by creating a blank workbook and from the menu select "Data"> “From text”. Then select the CSV file that you downloaded to your computer and click “Import”. In the window that emerges, select "Delimited, File Source: 65001: Unicode (UTF-8)", check the option "My data has headers" and click "Next". In the next window, select the Question Mark as Delimiter and click "Next". In the next window click "Finish" and immediately after "OK". In this way the CSV file information will be organized into Microsoft Excel cells.
I downloaded my contact cards in VCF (vCards) format, how can I use them?
VCF files are files that contain contacts and are recognized by many devices (computers and mobile phones), apps (Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, etc.) and web email clients (Gmail, etc.), so you can use them to enter your contacts from the event and into your mobile phone. To import your VCF file contacts into your Google Account (in order to be available on your Android smartphone) download the VCF file to your computer, go to “Google Contacts” app (https://contacts.google.com) and Sign in your Google Account if you are not already logged in. Then, from the menu on the left (if it does not appear, click on the three horizontal bars at the top left) select "Import". In the window that emerges, click "Select file", select the VCF file from your computer, click on "Open" and finally click on "Import". The contacts in the file will be imported into your Google Account contacts and will be labeled "Imported on date" (import date).
