Setting Up an Import File

Procedure
  1. Export a similar file by following the steps in one of the following sections:
    For example, if you plan to import user groups, then first export existing user groups from Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express. Use the export file as a template for the import file.
    Note: In the "Include field header names" field, be sure to select Yes.
  2. When prompted, save the exported file by clicking Export to File. Save the file with a .csv extension.
  3. On your PC, open a spreadsheet application such as Excel.
  4. Open the file that you saved in Step 2.
  5. In the spreadsheet application, the required headings are listed in the first row, and the data is listed in all subsequent rows. Do one of the following:
    • If you are modifying existing entries, then delete the rows that you do not want to modify. Do not delete the header row.
    • If you are adding entirely new entries, then delete all rows except for the header row.
  6. For each group (or user or meeting) that you are importing, enter or modify the information in the appropriate fields.
    If you are unsure about what to enter in any field, then we recommend that you delete that entire column (unless it is a required field). If you leave the field blank, then the system uses the default value, which may not be what you want. For descriptions and values of each field, see these sections:
  7. Save and close the file.
