Is it possible to Quick Import add multiple users like adding multiple vehicles?

Hello Jeremy,

You can perform a bulk import by using the Geotab SDK. Simply navigate to my.geotab.com/sdk, select JavaScript Samples on left and select click here to download. This will download bulk edit programs which will allow you to bulk import vehicles, routes, route plans, and users.

When importing users you should follow the following format: UserName4,FirstName,LastName,Password,GroupName1|GroupName2|...|GroupNameN,SecurityClearanceName,,
where the last field being omitted does not need to be followed by a comma

The import structure of GroupName1|GroupName2|GroupName3 doesn't specify the hierarchical structure for Group3 so that Group1 is the parent of Group2 is the parent of Group3. Rather, GroupName1|GroupName2|GroupName3 just indicates which groups this user is to be associated so if there is more than 1 group with the same name the user will be associated with any 1 of those.

I would like to import the Employee ID field so we can use that as a key back to our HR system.  But the import format does not include this field.  Are you all planning to update the importer to include all the User fields?

Hey Tony,

As of now, we are not planning on updating the import tool. However, through some simple JavaScript coding, you can update the tool to include and define this field. 

Thanks,
