Your App Data

We look forward to creating Your App!

We take your data, use our system, and create your app.

Here are the 6 items of data we need from you for each profile.  Our ideal format for receiving the data is shown for each feature after the colon.  If possible, please separate the data so that each item is in a separate column in your spreadsheet or database.  If your data is in another format, but it’s in a consistent format, we can work with it!

1) First name of contact person (capitalized):  Firstname

2) Last name of contact person (capitalized):  Lastname

3) Contact person’s company name:  ABC Company

4) Company’s website address (URL):  www.companyname.com

5) Phone number of contact person, company or organization (USA only): 555-123-4567

6) Email address of contact person, company or organization: name@companyname.com

To send us your data, an Excel .csv file works beautifully. We can handle other formats as well.  The data works best if it includes no special characters.  For example, please do not use trademark symbols or registered trademark symbols.

If a cell in the database is left blank because the information is unknown or not available, for a seamless app user experience, that component of the profile simply will not display.  (Please leave cells blank if the information is unknown, i.e. please do not put a zero (0) or a notation like “N/A” in the cell.)

Please send a database or spreadsheet of the above data to us, and please feel free to ask us any questions: contact@handshake20.com.

***

Most companies and organizations have the above information readily available.  Other information has to be created.  We currently do not offer data collection, data altering, or database creation services at this time.

You are welcome, but not required, to add up to 3 profile features to the above 6 features from the following list if you have the data available or want to create it for your app’s database.  An explanation or example of the needed format for the data is indicated after the colon.

> Street address:  1234 Streetname

> City and state: Cityname, ST

> Company or organization description: Up to 150 characters

> LinkedIn public profile URL:  http://www.linkedin.com/in/annegilesclelland

> Twitter:  http:/twitter.com/handshake20

> Facebook:  http://www.facebook.com/cbtownside

>Newsfeed: http://feeds.feedburner.com/Handshake20

> Geolocation

Geolocation requires latitude and longitude and counts as 2 profile items.  We have used this tool to generate latitude and longitude data but others will work as well.

Example address:  1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, DC

Latitude database entry:
38.898590

Longitude database entry:
-77.035971

If you want to add an image or logo to each profile, we charge a set-up fee and need the data you provide to us to have a special format.  For every profile feature over the 6 basic features and your choice of 3 from the optional features, we charge a set-up fee per feature.  Your app may have up to 20 features. 

Again, to send us your data, an Excel .csv file is preferred but we can handle other formats as well.  The data works best if it includes no special characters, i.e. please do not use trademark symbols or registered trademark symbols. If you choose to add a company description, do not add extra spaces before, after, or within the text.

We can only include or add profile features to your mobile application if the data is in the correct format as specified above.

Please send a database or spreadsheet of the above data to us, and ask us any questions:  mobile@handshake20.com.
