How to import a file for adding, editing, or deleting multiple departments at the same time

You can add departments, delete them, change their names, and change the order they appear in by using a CSV file.

  • To use this function, system administrator level permission is required.
  • Depending on the number of departments, it may take some time to complete the import. When the import is complete, a notification email will be sent to the system administrator.

 

(1) Click on "Admin Settings", then on "Add /Edit /Delete Department".

 

(2) Click on "Import from File".
 

 

(3) Click on "Write into File" in the area marked "1", and write the current settings out into a file.
     Changes cannot be made in increments. You must extract the most recent department information
     and do your work from that.



(4) Create the file to do the import with.

For details about the items in the file, see here.

Caution when adding departments:
      Please do not put anything in the "Department ID" area.
      The system will automatically assign a Department ID when adding the department.
  Example:

 

(5) From the area marked "2", click on "Select File", and then select the file you created in step 4.

From the preview display, check that there are not any problems with the character codes or separators in the file.

(7) Start the read in of the file.
    
If there is no problem in the content of the file, click on "Start Import".
Depending on the number of departments, it may take some time to complete the import.
After it is complete, a notification email will be sent to the system administrator.
