How to use special characters and emojis with a CSV file

CSV File

When you upload a CSV file to Publer, especially if it is an Excel file, certain characters might not be uploaded properly. This would include any special characters and/or emojis.

In such cases, we recommend that you use Google Sheets instead of Excel, to avoid any issues. Google Sheets will always work better with special characters and/or emojis, while Excel tends to have issues.

Once you have created your Google Sheet, you can download it and save it as a CSV file, and then upload it to Publer.

Downloading a Google Sheet:

To quickly download and save a Google spreadsheet as a CSV:

Open your Sheets file.
Click the File tab at the top left corner of the page.
Then, click on Download.
Finally, select the comma-separated values (CSV) option.

Once you have downloaded the CSV file, you can upload it to Publer and proceed with scheduling the posts.
