Now Super Admin users can batch create new sites, new users and add users to existing sites as simply as uploading a .xls or .csv file.
Your file just needs to contain site URLs, site titles, username, user role and user passwords (yes, you can set passwords with this too :)
And creating the batch file is as simple as downloading the .xls template, following the instructions in header row of the .xls file and uploading.
Here are some examples of how you can use it:
- Create user with site and preset password with a default role
- Create user with site and auto-generated password with default role
- Create user without a site with a preset password
- Add user to an existing site with default role
And it is as simple as using Excel!
