User Import

By Martin Gartner (gadgetto)

An extra to easily import users into the MODX user database and batch assign MODX user groups and roles. The importer accepts data files in CSV format. Automatically assigns User Groups and Roles during import and validates your import data to prevent inconsistent user objects.

Feature Highlights

  • With User Import it's very easy to batch import users into the user database of MODX.
  • All fields of the user object are supported!
  • Choose one or more User Groups and a Role and User Import will automatically assign all imported users.
  • User Import performs extensive checks on your import data: check for already existing users, check for duplicated email addresses, check for valid birth-dates, ...
  • Notify new imported users via email
  • Save your import presets to system settings
  • Watch the progress of you user import in a console log window. After the import has finished, you can download the full import log to see if errors occurred.
  • User Import currently comes with 3 languages: English, German, French
