People who do not have admin rights can also upload data using the same steps. However, they will need a magic link to do so. If you need the magic link please email us at help@infeedo.com :)

Guidelines for uploading the data

  1. No changes or modifications should be made to the sample database format
  2. The headers in the first row of database file should not be swapped or deleted
  3. Name, Email ID, Date of Joining, Department, Location are mandatory fields
  4. Email address should be entered as sample@infeedo.com and Date of Joining as DD-MMM-YYYY (17-Jan-1983)
  5. Please note the email address is a unique identifier. If the database file has two employees mapped to a same email ID, the system will show this as an error stating Duplicate Email ID.
  6. Phone number should be entered as a 10-digit number without the country code (for Indian Phone Numbers) or special characters and spaces (Sample: 9900012677).
For updating the status of an active employee to Ex-employee, besides what has already been mentioned above, you must include the date of leaving in the 'Leaving Date' section of the database file. Once done, upload the database file and the employee would be disabled
