Introduction

In addition to Adding Users in aMember, you can also import a list of users from a .csv file. The advantage of adding users via import is that you can add multiple users at once without having to add each user separately. All you will need is a .csv file with the following data for each user (see screenshot below).

  • Login
  • Password
  • Email
  • First Name
  • Last Name

Once you have this, importing users is a simple 4 step easy process.

Importing Users

  2. Select "Import Users" under "Users" from the options on the left side of the screen.

Step 2: Assigning Fieldnames, Subscriptions and Delimiters

Step 2 of the Import Users wizard displays the list of imported users from the file in columns. On this screen, you can assign fieldnames to the imported columns, setup subscriptions and select delimiters to be used for the import.

Assigning Fields

Assign the fields for each column of data by clicking on the arrow button at the top of the column and selecting a field name.

Skip First Line

Select the "Skip First Line" checkbox to skip importing the first line. This feature is userful when the first line in the .csv file contains the column headings.
