I am trying to import users with more than one value in the same attribute (checkbox group) but nothing does the job.
Lets say i have an attribute called “Business_Activities” and two values in it “Value A” and “Value B”.
I want to import firstname.lastname@example.org, and this user´s activities matches Value A and Value B, so i want it to have both values A and B checked.
Test 1: email@example.com appears two times in the same CSV file, one for Value A and another for Value B:
Result 1 (Overwrite Existing option checked): After 2nd import, Phplist will show firstname.lastname@example.org with Value A only.
Result 2 (Overwrite Existing option unchecked): After 2nd import, Phplist will show email@example.com with Value B only.
I search and read a lot about this but it seems there is nothing i can do to make it importing multiples values in the same attribute for the same subscriber.

In fact, i considered that option, but for lists building structure purposes, its just not doable (i´m talking about the AND/OR operators while selecting the final subscribers list using Criteria feature).
On your first example, it is ok for two or three values. If i have 30 or 40, you can imagine how it would be if i have to put every possible combinations. Not doable.
On your second example, i will not be able to use the OR operator anymore (it only applies between values, while the AND applies between attributes).
Also, i have another attributes (Country, etc), so its just not possible to make it a plain csv, with each value in a different column. It has to be an attribute for each entry and then populate each one with respective values (in some cases, hundreds of them).
Lets say i want to send a message exclusively for companies operating in US OR Canada (attribute “Country” with checkboxgroup), AND which business activities are Construction OR Architecture (attribute “Business Activity” with checkgroupbox).
If i have it working as i intend to, it would be just fine to apply criteria selection to send the message only to Contractors or Architects from US or Canada.
If i dont have it working as i intend to, the message will be sent to all users from US and Canada (whatever their business activity), and to all Contractors and Architects (whatever their country).
Thats why checkboxgroup attribute would be perfect for me.
I could use AND plus OR in every Criteria selection to send a given message.
