Lightspeed Dashboard: User Import
A user data file will add or update user accounts. This file MUST be named either users.csv or users-v2.csv. Files with any other name, case, or extension will be ignored. There is no functional difference between these two files. However, if both files are present, only users-v2.csv will be processed.
Note: users-v2.csv files must contain headers with the specific column Field Names (all lowercase) below.
Create the users.csv or users-v2.csv file
