Import : Provides the possibility to quickly import members for a group from an Excel sheet. In order to have the correct format of the Excel file it is advised to first use the export function to create an Excel sheet and further edit this sheet.

When importing an Excel sheet, there is the option to only add the people in the excel sheet, or to clear the current list of members and set the ones loaded from the excel sheet as the members of a list. The file used for import requires the following columns:

Group

First name

Last name

E-mail

Unique ID

Mailing

In this Unique ID column, the unique identifier of a person should be stored. In case of LDAP authentication, this is the content of the LDAP field selected on the LDAP adapter settings tab under "LDAP unique ID field".

Add member : the standard People Search interface is shown :
