I liked this a lot. Works exactly as we needed. Lots of export options.
Ease of use
Super easy-to-use. True, it looks nothing like Joomla at all. It has its own, 100% different interface, which is a bit odd. But its easy!
Super fast replies. A+++

Great product for a small price
I used this to: Imported member list from Excel file
I just needed something simple to import a list of users and email addresses to a 2.5 site. Instructions were simple to follow and everything worked perfectly. I was pleasantly surprised that the software then sent an email to each new registered user with their login and password.

Really clean interface

I have to say I had my doubts that there was a component out there that would allow me to import a CSV file with plain passwords and when imported they would be properly encrypted. Glad I was wrong!

Of course you will need to prepare your data. I use Seblod CCK, so I will have to go thru additional steps for supplemental user data, but I'm OK with that once I have a user id to associate with.

I have not tried the other migration methods the author offers, but with such a clean interface. Money well spent!

Great lifesaver

I needed to migrate from a Typo3 system to Joomla. Had 600 paying customers that i needed to migrate.

The data set in Typo3 is totally different, so i needed a good tool, or i would be facing some serious SQL statements all night

And there was no room for mistakes in the process because i would be loosing clients.

I purchased ArraUserMigrate. It allowed me to create new User Account fields so i could match the two data sets. Perfect!

I dumped the T3 users to Excell and cleaned them up a little and saved that to comma separated.

The only difficult part was to figure out the required format of the import file.

I am very happy today, this is a great product that saved me lots of time. It was a real pleasure to work with.

Fast and efficient

Brilliantly simple and quick! Migrated across all users from 2.5 to 3.1.5 with no problems whatsoever. Absolutely fantastic value for money, congratulations to the developer, they have made my life so much easier.

Fantastic Solution!!

Installed, and was migrating users from v2.5 to v3.x in no time at all. Has saved me a heap of time playing around with MySQL DBs between sites, that's for sure. Such an incredibly small price to pay for such a fantastic solution. Job well done and top points to the joomlarra team on this component.
I appreciate the try, and eventually I got the extension to work but I can not lie about the fact that it is very unsatisfactory that it doesn't work properly across different OS! It was a immense frustration, my website was delivered a week later because there was simple solution/response.

For any Mac users, use PC to save yourself from a big load of annoyance. (**my review is not about OS's)

Don't get me wrong, I'm not bashing ARRA... compatibility issues happen between OS's.

I'm not entirely sure if I missed a step, but it seemed to me that Mac Office Excel added "stuff" to the exported file (CSV), that when importing it it caused ARRA to not recognize the fields.

I tried saving as TXT, and it worked when I typed by hand four fictitious users to test the extension. However, that same TXT didn't work when I tried "copying and pasting" multiple lines (users) from the Excel file. (*I was trying to "clean" the file by using it in TXT rather than CSV by throwing the data into the TXT file, which is supposed to be plain text!)

In the end, after pulling my hair off, I used a PC (on another computer) and did the whole process all over again. Exported a sample file, added the users I needed, saved and imported the same file. In the PC it worked as CSV. (*I did try as TXT before hand, trying to keep the file simple and clean, but that didn't work. It said the file "had been imported successfully", but when I looked at it it had not added any users past the first line, which was simply myself!).

Anyways, I do appreciate ARRA trying at first, and again, it does the job (eventually), but it was a lot of wasted hours trying to figure this out on my own to make it work, and I wouldn't be honest if I said I'm 100% satisfied.

Hope this helps future users and ARRA team to look for solutions for this type of compatibility problems so other customers don't have to go through the same frustration.

Take care.
Owner's reply: Right in the component page we have instructions for MAC users and we added now more info in separate documentation page too. This issue is not because our migrate component but because MAC CSV encoding.

Useful component

I imported 3000+ users from Excel in Japanese. It worked perfectly and very intuitive as I expected. The support is also excellent. It's worth using!
