What is it?
The committee import tool allows you to bring external or historical committee records into your MC Professional database. Use this tool to bring in old committee data being stored outside of your MC Professional platform.
Uploading a CSV File
To upload a committee .csv file, go to Database > Profile Imports, and then click on the Committee Import link, located on the top right corner of the screen.
In the file, at least one row must include the profile's username OR member number, which will serve as the unique identifier to tie the committee information to a member's profile. Download the Committee Import Template to get a good start and make sure the import is set up correctly. Note: The committee import will only update profiles that already exist in your MC Professional database, and will not create new users. To add new users, you will need to use the profile import tool.
Once the csv file is prepared, click the Upload button and choose your file. Then, click Import Committee File when you are ready to begin the import. Next you will see the Profile Import report, showing you which committees and committee members were added successfully, and which errors were encountered during the import. Note: if you don't see anything at first, that's ok! Just refresh the page to see progress. You can also see the results by going to the Import Report.
Accessing the data
Once your import is complete, you can view the committee records by navigating to the Community > Committees area of your site!
