Add multiple card holders from an Excel file and their photos – Card Data Management
This video explains how to add a list of cardholders using an Excel file and batch upload their photos. Go to “Data management”, click on “Import data” and select the Excel file with the cardholder’s data you like to add. If your Excel file has the column names as the first row, check the box “The first row contains column names”. Link the fields of your Excel file with the fields of CardsOnline, so the correct data is placed in the correct fields. Be aware that the “Index” field needs to be linked to a field with unique ID numbers. When all fields are linked, click on the “Overwrite records” button. The cardholder data from the Excel file has now been imported into the Data Manager.
To also link the photos to this data, first find the data field that corresponds to the names of the photos. In our case this is the Index that is linked to the ID numbers. All Photos have the ID number of the correct cardholder as their name. Now go to “Import photos”, select the corresponding source, in this example this is “Index”, click “Upload” and select the needed photos to import them. The photos are added in one go and automatically linked to the correct cardholder.
