  1. Enter data to file

 

The Excel template for Users has 3 sheets:

  • User
    • Enter data into this sheet except for the user ID. Leave the ID field blank when importing. There are two types of fields: required and optional. The required data must be filled.
    • Required data: Username, Password, First Name, Last Name, User Type, Email and Company Name.
  • Important info
    • Information about users you can enter: Field Name, Required/Optional, Restrictions.
  • Time zones
    • Information about time zones: TimeZone ID, Description.

 

Tip: You cannot leave a blank line in the file as it stops the import of the subsequent entries. In the case shown only the users on the first two lines will be created.
