Importing employees with CSV
It is possible to add all your employees to Shiftbase at once through an import. You can do this with a CSV file. You can also choose to add employees manually.
Go to the Employees tab and click on the arrow next to the + Add employee button at the top right, then click on CSV user import.
From this screen you can download a sample CSV file. The first line of this file contains the field names that can be specified. The second line shows an example of a user as it can be recorded. Fill in the data as completely as possible to best capture the employees.
