CSV Files for Group Member Import

CSV files for group member import must meet special requirements.

To ensure that an external CSV file with information about group members can be imported into the Control Panel without errors, special rules regarding file extension and content structure must be observed.

Rules for creating a CSV file for group member import

  • The extension of the import file is always .csv. Other file extensions, such as .txt or .docx, are not allowed and will not be accepted.
  • The CSV file contains only one column, in which individual entries are entered one below the other.
  • The first row contains always the column name and can be named individually.
  • Group members are listed by their email addresses. The addresses must be correctly formatted (according to the pattern "local-part@hostname.top-level-domain").

    Incorrectly formatted addresses are not considered during the import.

  • Each row may contain only one address.
  • Duplicated entries do not affect the processing of the file, but should be avoided.
