How to Create Groups by Importing a Spreadsheet

When you create groups by importing them from a spreadsheet, you can create any number at the same time. However, you must use the VST Administration Console to assign members to them.

To create groups with a spreadsheet import:

  1. If you are not on the Update Organization page, navigate to it by selecting Admin > Edit Organization from the menu at the top right of any page.

    The Update Organization page appears.

  2. In the Members section, click the Invite button.

    The Invite Users page appears.

  3. Download the sample file and use it as a template. Values in the Department field of the template are required and are imported as group names. Values in the other fields are optional and for your reference only.
  4. Click Choose File and navigate to a file containing a list of group names in CSV (comma-separated value) format.
  5. Select Invite.

    The system creates groups for each of the values in the Department column.

    If any email addresses are included in the spreadsheet, invitations are sent to those users but they are not automatically associated with any groups.
