Learn about importing data from a CSV file.
After you have finished preparing the CSV files, use the Import page of the Maintenance section in the Administration Console to load the database. Vocera lets you validate the data in your CSV file before you import it:
When you validate data, Vocera examines each row in the CSV file to confirm that it is formatted correctly. Vocera reports any errors, provides details to help you correct the errors, and lets you fix the problems before importing.
When you import data, Vocera loads each row in the CSV file that is formatted correctly. Vocera flags any rows that have errors, reports the type of error, and does not load the data in the problem rows.
Even if you import data without validating it, Vocera will not let you corrupt the database with incorrectly formatted data. However, it is usually more convenient to validate the data before importing it.
To import data from a CSV file:
Click Import to load the data immediately.
Vocera displays a dialog box showing you the progress of your action. When the validation or update is finished, Vocera displays the progress as 100 percent.
