Does import utilize the standard functionality of sending out “welcome” mails to users during importing process ?
Import has its own more advanced "welcome" emails notifications (compared to joomla's), so you can create custom message, specify login, password, links and much more. To enable email notification switch to "Advanced Mode" on step 2.
Does it support national characters and UTF-8?
Sure, our import supports all characters from UTF-8, for example: Ü, ß, É, 字 - just be ensured that your file has UTF-8 encoding.
How to generate passwords automatically ?
If you don't have passwords in your excel/csv file our import will generate password automatically. Passwords strength will be based on "Joomla Password Options" (go to Admin Panel->Users->Manage->Options->Password Options)
Is it possible to embed a logo image or list into the notification email ?
Sure, in popup with email editor switch to "Source code" mode and using HTML you can customize your email template in a way you need.
Ticket “#XXXX” has been created.
Fast way to fix this issue is to change settings in Joomla administrator panel. Please go to: "System -> Global Configuration -> Server" and change "Error Reporting" field to "None" value. If it doesn’t help - please contact us and provide us with ticket number.
Step 3, not all users are going to be imported, why ?
There are a few reasons why some users might not be imported, e.g. user don't have a Username or user is a duplicate (mentioned second time in file), etc . To find out the reason why some users can’t be imported - you need to hover your mouse over the user in tab “Won’t be imported”.
I can't upload files more than X MB, why ?
Maximum file upload size is a global PHP setting (called uploadmaxfilesize), you need to increase this value. Most hosting providers allows to change this setting in your Hosting Control Panel. Also you can ask your system administrator or developer to change it.
