Is it possible to bulk load users? Also, want to know if it's possible to load the users as inactive and activate them later in a phased manner.
We can indeed bulk upload users via 'Import' option - which imports data via excel sheets. Your desired functionality can currently be achieved by following steps -
1. Bulk upload user records with 'User Role' set as 'No Access'
2. Role - No Access ensures No Welcome Email is sent to newly created users.
3. Perform desired operations on created user records
4. To activate the users back - assign them any role other than 'No Access' and perform a 'Reset Password' Action. Both of these steps can be done in bulk for set of users.
In Rollbase 5.2, we are releasing a new feature around this area to enhance ease of usage for such use cases. In summary, users can be created with a new checkbox field signifying 'Send Welcome Email' as un-checked. This ensures no email is sent yet. At any later stage when user profile is ready for use - user record can be edited to check 'Send Welcome Email' and Welcome Email will be sent to user.
