Update user list
If you for some reason need to update information on many of your users, you can upload a file with updated information for these existing users as an alternative to update one user at a time. You might want to add missing information, e.g. Firstname, Lastname if only username is registered, or add email address if only mobile number is entered, or add or update Keywords.
How to do it:
- First, export a file with all existing users
- In this file, delete the users (rows) you don’t want to change and delete column external_id
- Add or change information for the users you want to update, and save the file as a csv/txt file (CSV UTF-8 recommended).
- Then select Update existing users, and from the popup window choose the file.
- If the file is validated as ok (no cells are red), click Start import.
File format must be txt or csv. We recommend CSV UTF-8 encoding for the file to make sure characters other than a-z are shown correctly.
The first row in the file must contain these column names:
user_name, firstname, lastname, user_num, email, mobile, usergroup_name, language_code, user_id, keywords.
Row 2-N contains the users that will be updated. We allow max 100 rows in a file.
