1. Download and fill in the template file.

The template is available here → click

Below, you will find tips on how to fill in the file:

Please make sure that the names you put in the columns in the file are identical to those in Calamari:

  • work schedules → click

  • approval flows → click

  • holiday calendars → click

    If the names in the file are not identical in the file and in Calamari - the system will not allow you to import the data.
    We recommend copying the names directly from Calamari (links above) and pasting them to the Excel file to avoid mistakes.

Before saving the file:

  • Make sure that the dates (hire date, birth date) have the following format: YYYY-MM-DD (Year-Month-Day)

  • Check if there are no empty spaces left at the end of each line

  • Format everything as text

  • Make sure that the field delimiter is →, (comma), and the string delimiter is → " (upper inverted commas)

2. Save the file in a CSV format.

​Note: If you try to upload the file in the .xls format (Excel format) - the system will not accept it.

3. Upload the file

Log in to Calamari → go to Configuration → Import → Employee import → and upload your file :)

Note: If you need any assistance with uploading data, go to Configuration → Import →

We're happy to help!
