The User Importer creates multiple new Users as a single bulk action. It is also used to update or edit existing Users. This article covers how to update in bulk via the User Importer.
Create a New Import Template
Go to People > click User Importer > click New
Select the fields to update, including Custom Profile Fields.
Only include User Groups, Course Completions, and Awards if any of that data will be updated.
Download the template for this Import from the list view.
Edit the CSV Import
Add a User ID column. Including User IDs in the import CSV triggers Users to be updated rather than created.
Editing or removing any of the pre-populated column headers in the CSV template causes a failed upload.
User IDs are found in the User Manager.
Once the User IDs are included in the document, make any necessary changes to the fields of the CVS file.
If User Groups, Course Completions, or Awards are selected in the Import editor, they are included as columns in the spreadsheet. Make sure to mark each column accordingly.
When the CSV file is uploaded, this overwrites the User information in Tovuti.
If a User is assigned a User Group, Course Completion, or Award, and this column is blank, then this item is removed from the User’s profile.
Course Completions and Awards are marked in the spreadsheet with dates (MM/DD/YYY).
Save the CSV file.
Click Import User CSV and select the correct CSV file to bulk update those Users.
