Importing locations

To start a new file import, go to Core HR > Account data > Import data and click Create new.

Open the Type dropdown list and select ‘Locations’. This name may change depending on your chosen terminology.

The purple bar under the file selection will then update to include a ‘Click here’ link for downloading a CSV template that includes all the fields necessary to get importing.
