    The Department code field is required when importing users.

    Keep the file structure intact to make sure the import will successfully go through.

  4. Then go back to the Import Departments window and click Browse...

  5. Locate the file on your computer and click Open.

  6. Finally, click Import.

  7. The importing process is completed. In the Import Results window, you can copy the import statistics and click Done.
