How to create users in bulk


How can you create users in bulk?


  • Admin console


In order to create users in bulk, you need to first download the template from the Admin console. Let's follow these steps:
  1. Open your Admin console.
  2. Go to Menu > Directory > Users.
  3. At the top of the page, click Bulk update users.
  4. Click Download blank CSV template to download a comma-separated values (.csv) file.
  5. Open the CSV file in a spreadsheet application, such as Google Sheets or Microsoft Excel.
Within the file, we have 5 mandatory fields:
  • First Name.
  • Last Name.
  • Email Address: Use the format
  • Password: Must be at least 8 characters.
  • Org Unit Path: Enter / (forward slash) to place users in your top-level.
Pay attention to the Organizational Unit Path if you have multiple Organizational Units (OU) as it is space and sensitive, let's use the following example:
  • /Sales (for a child below the top-level parent).
  • /Students/First Grade.
Once the file has been saved, you need to take these steps to create the users in bulk:
  1. At the top of the Users page, click Bulk update users.
  2. Click Attach CSV file.
  3. Browse to the location on your computer and attach the CSV file.
  4. Click Upload.
