Phones and Users File Formats
This chapter provides information to update phones and users
file formats using a comma separated values (CSV) data file.
Add Phone and User File Format
You can add the phone and user file format with a text-based
CSV data file. After the CSV data file is created, 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.
Before You Begin
You must create a CSV data file that defines individual
values for each user that you want to update. See
Add Phones with Users Using the BAT Spreadsheet
to create the CSV data file. For an example text-based CSV file, see the
Phones with Users Combinations File Format.
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.
Add File Format Configuration window displays.
