Bulk Upload - Update Employee's
The below article is relating to the bulk upload - Update employee's which can be found by going to
Administration > Company > Bulk Upload
For this bulk upload it will update and overwrite your live employee files so it is important that the information you are changing is correct for your employee's.
In the bulk upload there is an example CSV that you can download, you can create your own if you would like but it is recommended you use the example to avoid errors when uploading the CSV.
Editing the CSV
When editing your CSV for the bulk upload you need to make sure you are using all the headers that are needed if you are using the example CSV it will come with all the headers you need.
it is important to note to not remove any of the headers from the CSV as even if you are not updating certain fields for the employee the headers need to remain so the upload can assign the entry to the right field.
If you are not changing a field for the employee or are only looking to change one part e.g. employee's manager you can leave all the other column's blank as the upload only changes fields that are populated it wont update anything to none/blank
Uploading the CSV
