Importing User Administration Data

Use the Import from File page to import user data. You can import users, user available services, departments, membership, job titles, groups (or roles), and user groups or roles membership. You can import data that has been exported from this or another Kintone portal, or data that has been entered into the CSV template file. You can open these CSV template files in Excel, populate them with data, save them as a CSV file, and then import them using this page.
To use the CSV template file, first select the data type from the Contents to Import list.  Click Screen_Shot_2017-05-26_at_10.41.54_AM.png, populate the file with the user data, and import it using this same page.
