This section describes the import-from-file functionality. It is important to ensure this is done in an efficient order:
- Ensure all headwear IDs are imported first, such that they are available for auto-assignment when importing operators
- Ensure all crews are created (CONFIG > CREWS > “+ NEW CREW”), such that they are available for auto-assignment when importing operators
- Ensure all operators are imported, such that they exist in the system when importing their fatigue data.
The format for the operator file for import is "Employee ID, First Name, Last Name, Crew Name, Headwear Label". Headwear Label is the number on the headwear, e.g. X12345.
All entries on a separate row and values separated by commas:
9806,First Name,Last Name,Crew A,X12345
NOTE: Before importing operators make sure all headwear is imported and all crews have been created.
The imported operators can be viewed by navigating to CONFIG > “Operators”
All file import features have the option to be run in ‘Safe Mode’. In ‘Safe Mode’ all data is processed as per normal, except the changes will not be submitted to the Fatigue Manager database.
Once data is imported it cannot be undone. This makes ‘Safe Mode’ particularly useful when checking if the steps listed above have been skipped, meaning that a substantial amount of manual assignment and configuration would be needed. As such, ‘Safe Mode’ allows you to identify any major issues prior to the permanent data import.
NOTE: using ‘Safe Mode’ will make the data import process slower, however provides the above benefits.
