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, Preset Language (leave cells blank if language support is disabled), Date of Joining, Department, Location, Country, City, Employee code and Cohorts (if applicable) 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. If the database file has two employees mapped to the same email ID, the system will show this as an error stating Duplicate Email ID.
  6. Phone numbers should be entered as a 10-digit number without the country code (for Indian Phone Numbers) or special characters and spaces (Sample: 9900012677).

About Preset Language column:

  • Amber now supports 4 languages: English, Malay, Indonesian, and French. This column helps Amber know employee’s preset language and she converses using the same.
  • If language support is disabled for your account, then leave cells blank. Amber will continue reaching out in English. Note: By default, language support is disabled for your account.
  • If language support is enabled for your account, then enter preset language value for each employee as English, Malay, Indonesian, or French
  • If language support was ever enabled in the past (and is now disabled), enter preset language value for each employee as English
  • If you want to enable/disable language support then reach out to your customer success manager or contact us at help@infeedo.com
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
