Most common mistakes in the import process

 

We explain some of the errors you may find in the user import process:

  1. The {X} segment does not exist. If this error occurs, you must create the segment. 

    Check out our article What a Segment is and how to create it

  2. Empty user field. The column "User" is a required field in all rows. 

  3. Empty name field. The "Name" column is a required field in all rows

  4. Empty email field. The "Email" column is a required field in all rows

  5. The indicated user already exists in the system.  Check the excel you are importing and discard the possibility of duplicate emails. If, after checking, there are no duplicate emails it is possible that they have been registered in our Coronavirus Emergency Project. A project in which Zapiens is open and free for everyone. Write a new ticket and we will help you to solve it

  6. Wrong format at column {X}. Remember not to remove any column from the user template even if it is not used. If you delete a column, you will get this error

  7. Email format is wrong. If an email does not have the @ this error occurs

  8. The user is not a theme admin. He or she cannot manage categories. Include a 1 in the Theme Admin column to fix this error

  9. The selected category is not registered. Check the "Categories" section and create the category to fix this error. Check out our article What Categories are and how to create them

  10. The {X} segment does not allow multiple values. Check if the "Multiple" feature of that segment is enabled to fix this error. Check out our article What a Segment is and how to create it
