Bulk load users

This question is not answered

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.
