Can I import my users in bulk?

Yes! Save time by importing all your users at once, using a CSV file instead of adding them one by one.

How to Import Users in Bulk:

Step 1 - Have All Your User Information Ready:

Make sure you've gathered all the names and emails for all your users. (Note: team admins will need to be added separately. Those instructions are included towards the end of this article).

Step 2 - Create a New CSV file (or Download the Template)

Create a new Excel or Google Sheets file. Be sure to save it as a .CSV with a file name that you will be able to find easily later such as "MyTeamMembers.csv".

You  can also download a template by going to the Team Members tab and selecting the "+ Upload CSV" button. At the bottom of the instructions window that opens there is a "Download CSV Template - all columns" button that will download the template CSV to  your computer.

Step 3 - Add the Column headers 

Note: If you downloaded the template in the previous step, the column headers will already be filled in for you and you can skip this step

In the first row, you'll need to add these required column headers:

  • first_name
  • last_name
  • email
  • user_role

You may also wish to add some of the optional columns. More information is available in Step 4 to help you decide whether you want to include them or not. 

Step 4 - Add Your Users' Information

Add the required names, email addresses, and roles of each of your users. Make sure names are capitalized and that emails are all lowercase. Below are the details for the required columns: 

Required Columns Details

Column  Description
first_name First name of a new user.  

 last_name

Last name of a new user. 
email Email address of a new user. 
user_role Instructor
Instructors have full administrative access. They can view team member information, download reports, and assign content.  They also can add, remove, and edit members. 
Instructor Assistant
Instructor Assistants have limited administrative access. They can view team members and assign content but cannot edit members. 
Member
Member is the standard user role. These users can access the full catalog and see their assigned content as well as view their own dashboard and information. 


Additionally, you may choose to add some of the optional columns for your users. Below are the details for the optional columns: 

Optional Columns Details

Column Description
password Password for a new user. Password must be at least 6 characters and do not have to be unique. Users whose passwords are set with CSV will not receive an invitation email.
location Set a location for a user. Examples might be a city, specific office, or site location. 
job_title Job title for a user. 
group_id ID of the group that you are adding the user to. If left blank, user will be added to your main group. This field only needs to be filled in if you use sub-groups. 
remove This field is only used if you are modifying an existing team member to remove them from the group. If you want to remove the user from the group, enter TRUE. Otherwise, leave empty or enter FALSE. If you are creating a new user, leave empty or enter FALSE.
provider Use this field to specify which authentication provider your users must use. If left blank, a user will be offered the choice of login providers. Available providers: email, Google (google), Microsoft (microsoft), Apple (apple). White labels may have more provider options like Azure Identity (azure_id) or Open ID Connect (OIDC).
trade If you would like to specify your trade you can do so here. Available trades: Residential HVAC, Commercial HVAC, Electrical, Plumbing, Solar, Multi-Family Maintenance, and Facilities Maintenance.

Step 5 - Save the File

Save or download the CSV file to your computer. 

Step 6 - Upload the CSV 

In your Team Members tab, select the "+ Upload CSV" button. Select the CSV file from your computer, wait a moment, and your users will be added automatically!

How to add an Admin

Want to add a fellow Admin user? You'll need to add them separately from the bulk import csv file.

  • Click the Team Members tab
  • Click "Add a Member"
  • Enter their name and email address
  • Use the drop down menu to choose Instructor or Instruction Assistant, depending on the administrative privileges you want to assign.
