    • Y = yes/active
    • N = no/inactive

Using the Import Feature

This section will walk you through the import process. The import feature will validate your file and alert you to any errors before you decide to commit to the changes.


  • In the Organizations page, click on the┬áImport Org/Dept button.
  • The Organization/Dept Import modal will appear, where you must select a CSV file to import.
  • After selecting a file, the import process will begin validating the file before taking action. The results of the validation will appear within the modal:
    • Number of records to be added (new organizations/departments)
    • Number of records to be updated (existing organizations/departments)
    • Number of records with error
      • if errors are found, a list will be generated to quickly identify the issue and what row it is found in the import file



  • If you wish to export a CSV file of the records with errors, click on Export Error Results
  • If you have no errors and you are ready to commit the changes, click Submit. If you have errors, you can still Submit to commit all records ready to add or update, but errors won't be included in the commit.
