Importing Users to UC People

It is possible to create entries within People based on a site's Users. This is done by exporting the list of users to a .CSV file, and then importing people from that .CSV file. It is important that you only do this once, as repeating this process will add 2nd, 3rd, and more copies of each person into your 'people' content area. However, it can be incredibly useful when migrating from User Profiles.

Export Users to CSV

Go to Tools > Import/Export Users and select the green Export Users button. Download the generated .CSV file to your computer.

Import People From CSV

Go to Tools > Import People, and below the 'One Time Use' heading, choose the .CSV file to upload. Hit the Import People button. A person entry will be recorded for each 'public' user, and all of their titles, phone numbers, and photos will be transferred for you.

Import/Export Users

Import/Export Users is a tool that allows site admins to manage their users through a .csv file editable in spreadsheet programs like Excel. With this file, admins can quickly setup or edit the details of dozens of users and commit all changes with a single upload. It is particularly useful for sites with large numbers of users. Moreover, this tool is supported by all themes and all sites.

Export Users

Go to Tools > Import/Export Users. Click the Export Users button.

This will create a .csv file of all current users, and download that to your computer. You can then edit this file in spreadsheet programs like Excel. You can edit any information about existing users and add new users by adding new rows.

It is important that you do not rename, rearrange, add, or delete any columns. If the .csv file is not formatted correctly, the 'import users" function will not work.

Import Users

Go to Tools > Import/Export Users. Choose the .csv file that you would like to import. The file must be in the exact same format as the one created by the export tool.

Select the Import Users button and the site will update the information of all users and create new users if needed.

Exporting Sites

You can export your site at any time by logging in and using the Tools > Export screen.

This option is useful for developers that want to try out a custom theme or plugin using their site's actual data, or for websites in Aurora that need to be moved to another server.

Forms

Note that Gravity Forms uses a separate import/export tool from the rest of WordPress. So, if you need to move forms, be sure to use its tool as well.
