Import users



To make things easier, we've provided you with an excel template. Please follow the input requirements outlined in the Help menu.

Keep in mind that Time Zone is a required input and if a license plate is entered, it must be unique to the database. License state is required only if a license plate is provided. You may enter a state other than those provided.

NFC and Custom NFC keys must be unique to the database; no duplicates can exist.

If you want to import any reporting groups - the user groups cannot include the "CompanyGroupId", otherwise all reporting groups wiil be ignored.
