>>My Team >Bulk Data
Adding a large number of employees can be done easily by importing employee details in bulk.
We recommend the following process to get as much employment details loaded at once.
- Filter list of employees in My Team for those who are most similar to the new employees being added
- Download list of filtered employees
- Copy / Paste row of existing employee that is most similar to New Employee
- WARNING - Delete the ZipID so that you will create a new employee rather than replacing data for the existing employee
- Replace all personal details with New Employee details. You may leave any field except the Name blank.
- Review all the employment details for those applicable to the New Employee
- Remove all rows for existing employees
- Import, all new employees will be created
