Member update or creation from CSV

This feature enables you to enter customers into one or more member groups, which can then be selected to participate in entry restricted activities you run.  

Member Groups enable you to effectively segment participants in any of your activities.


Append group information for existing members

You are able to upload a .csv file which includes your customer member ID’s and any addition of groups you would like these members to be part of.


Replace group information for existing members


 To update or create Members in your CompetitionLabs space you can upload a CSV file, by going to Members → Members List and click Update from CSV.

A new window is shownr: 

  •  - Browse lets you select any CSV file from you computer and upload it to the CompetitionLabs platform.
  • Append group information to existing members - Updates the information of the existing members that are in your list. For example, you have a member called TestMember and it is part of a test group and you want to add another group called test2 to the existing member so the member TestMember is now part of 2 groups - test and test2.
  • Replace group information for existing members - Replaces the information of the existing member that are in your list. For example, you have a member called TestMember and it is part of 2 groups called test group and test2 group and you want to replace the member TestMember so that it has only 1 group - test.
  • Create new members on missing entries - If selected, uploading a CSV file with a list of members that are not already in your space will create a new member. If not selected, then the row is ignored.

An example of the uploading files information is shown below:

1st columnmemberRefIdIt is a unique internal identifier for a member.
2nd columnnameA unique name for a Member.
3rd and all the rest columns

group1

group2

Adding a member to a defined group that latter can be used in a search field in searching for members that have been grouped.
