1. Download and fill in the template file.

  2. The obligatory field is the user's e-mail address in Calamari (which allows the system to identify the correct user you want to update).

  3. Fill in only the columns which you want to update. Example: employee changes the team assignment, so in the "Teams" column, put the names of the teams that this person will now be a part of.

  4. Make sure that the dates (hire date, birth date) have the following format: YYYY-MM-DD

  5. Please check if there are no empty spaces left at the end of each line.

  6. Format everything as text.

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

  8. Save the file in a CSV format.

  9. Log in to Calamari → go to Configuration → Import → Employees→Import→ Attach file :)


Please note that filling in the field in the template file overwrites the existing information in Calamari.

This means that if the user currently is a part of team X and, after the update, should be a part of X and Y in the file, you have to include both. So in column "Teams", there should be X and Y.
