Import owner RRS feed

  • Question

  • HI

    Can I import on the owner field, so it doesn't make the importer the owner but the owner is the one in the csv file. Is this possible?

  • Hi,

    Not with the out of the box 'import' functionality.  Here are some workarounds:
    a.  import the true owner into another field and have a workflow that assigns proper ownership on create
    b.  use data migration manager
    c.  use a 3rd party component - such as our PowerEdit

    Option A would do the trick if you don't have hundreds and hundreds of users.

  • If the users aren´t to many you could split up each user to a specific file and import them seperately since you can select who should be the owner of the imported records.
