Upload your CSV file
Add your entire crew at once by uploading a CSV file, making this process much quicker with just a few clicks.
- Headers must be spelled exactly as in the table below, but the order of the columns can be changed (Click here to download a CSV model);
- Labels in RED are mandatory;
- Labels in BLUE are optional;
- Labels underlined are optional and must be separated with a comma if multiples items
Below is an example of an employee list CSV file:
Fill in all data related to employees in order to make the most of the program functionalities and reports.
Once your CSV file is ready, go to Setup > Employees > Upload CSV and click the button on the top right corner:
1 - Choose the file to upload, the name will appear in green as in the example below:
For this example the fields Location, Team, and Position were not filled in, so Crewhu will automatically create or update them with the information in your CSV. It is also possible to leave these fields empty in the CSV and select the appropriate option from the dropdown menu (locations, teams, and positions previously created - click to see how).
Information contained in the CSV will replace the data selected in these fields.
2 - Even though the Profile is a mandatory field on the CSV, you are still required to select an option from the drop-down menu to proceed with the upload. Information contained in the CSV will replace the data selected in this field;
3 - Checking this box sends an invitation to the employees on the list automatically after the upload process is completed. (Click here to see how to send invitations manually);
4 - Click on Validate and the list below will appear to allow you to check the data that is about to be created/updated:
System will display a message in green showing the data that is about to be created. If there's something that needs to be changed, adjust your original CSV file and restart the process at step 1.
5 - Click on Submit and your team ready to go!
