Often when Districts/Organization begin using People, they typically are migrating from a different HR solution and are starting in Abre with a clean slate. When first utilizing Abre, People will automatically import your SIS Staff file upon setup. You can also manually create user accounts in people.
However, if Abre is not importing your Staff file, you can bulk import your staff file into People.
Required Abre Permissions
To upload a Staff Directory.csv, a user must have the "Directory Administrator" or "Abre System Admin" permissions enabled in People.
Populate People Via Bulk Import
In Abre, navigate to People.
Select the Settings tab.
Next, select Manage Imports and Exports.
You will first need to download the bulk import file structure titled Data Import Structure. This file structure will need to be followed in order for the upload to work successfully.
Next, populate the Data Import template file based on your needs (the only required fields are first name, last name, email address). This file will need to be saved and imported as a .CSV (format).
After you have filled out the Data Import Template and saved the file as a .CSV, navigate back to the same page and select Import.
- If your import is successful you will see a message of "Import Complete!" appear at the bottom of your screen.
