How to import Tasks into Bigin?

Tasks are always associated with a contact, company, or deal. So the tasks that you import must be associated with records in one or more of these parent modules (Contacts, Companies, and Deals). Before importing, ensure the import file contains unique reference fields to the Contacts, Companies, or Deals module, like Company Name, Company ID, Contact Name, Contact Email, Deal ID, or Deal Name. Use these fields to associate the deals properly when you import them.
