How to Import Labels

Teena Blaydes -

If you have Importer Access:

    • Format file (see below)
    • Upload to importer, selecting file-type "Labels"
    • Once the analysis completes, click "Submit and Request Run"

If you do not have Importer Access

    • Format file (see below)
    • Reach out to a coworker with importer access to have them upload the file, or complete this course and brief quiz on Talentlms to generate a request to be added to the importer so you can upload the file on your own (an importer invite will be sent within 24 hours, once reviewed and approved)

Example File:
