Import from Excel

The Excel Import Tool allows you to manage the information in an Excel File but then import the data into the application. All you need to do is to download the file to your machine, update the data and click the copy button. Then, just paste the information into the box below.

1. Download the Excel File

The first step is to download the Microsoft Excel file to your local machine. You will be making updates to the information there instead of the online forms. The excel document has instructions on what you need to do. If you are concerned with malicious code then open the developer code view and see. There is nothing happening but a simple data copy. Also, remember we don’t ask for account numbers, users ids, contact information or anything related to you personally. This information will never leave your computer.
