Applicant Data Import Options

If you have applicant data that you would like us to import for you, we offer this as a one-time free service for all paying customers. The free import must be in the standard import format (attached below) and any files must be listed with filenames in the standard import csv. Additional data imports are available for a small fee, after the initial free import. 

We also offer custom data import services if you would like our expert data analysts to handle the entire import process for you. Contact Support for more information on this option. Please make sure to send us a sample of the data you'd like us to import. 


Download the attached "applicant import template.csv" file. Follow the "CSV File Formatting Guidelines" provided below to make sure you are entering your data into the template in a format that we can import. 

Once you have your file ready, submit it to Support by creating a support ticket on our support site, attaching the file, and requesting your one-time free data import and we'll take care of the rest.
