Required security profile permissions: Users Create
You can upload multiple users at the same time either to create new users or to modify existing ones. If you use the bulk upload tool to modify existing users, it is a best practice to use the Row Changed column in the file where you indicate which users changed. Otherwise, NICE inContact considers all rows to be updated and takes much longer to upload the file.
If you want to create or edit a single user in the Central interface, see Create/Edit a New Single User.
In the Admin module, click Users.
Click Create New → Manage Multiple Users.
Download the template in either Excel or Notepad.
If you want to create new users, click Download Template.
If you want to modify existing users, click Download Existing Users.
Open the file in either Excel or Notepad.
Fill in the information about each user in the rows below the header and explanation rows. Do not modify the column names, order, or data format. The columns mostly match the same fields that are available when you create a new user. Click the link for a description of what belongs in the column.
- Row Changed — Indicates to the NICE inContact system whether information in the row changed. When you put a Y in this column, NICE inContact processes the row.
