Notes

When importing an extremely large number of users (files containing 1000 or more users) you might receive a Timeout Error. If this occurs, contact your site administration. They can then use the Manage Bulk User Management tool to import those users.

Your site administration controls which fields are required on the Add Participant and Import Participants pages.
