Phones and Users File Format


To create a comma separated values (CSV) data file to define individual values for each user that you want to update.

See the "Using the BAT Spreadsheet to Add Phones with Users" section on page 25-1.

For a text-based CSV file, see the "Phones With Users Combinations File Format" section on page A-3.

When you use a text editor to create the CSV data file, you create a file format for entering values in the text-based file. You enter values in the text file in the order that the file format specifies.

After the CSV data file is completed, you need to associate the file format with the text-based CSV data file. After associating the file format with the CSV file, the names for each field display as the first record in the CSV data file. You can use this information to verify that you entered the values for each field in the correct order.

Adding Phones/Users File Format

To add the file format with a text-based CSV data file, use the following procedure.

Procedure


Step 1 Choose Bulk Administration > Phones and Users> Phones & Users File Format > Assign File Format. The Add File Format Configuration window displays.

Step 4 To create a job for associating the matching file format with the CSV data file, click Submit.
