Can large groups of users be bulk imported (username/email/password)?
edited January 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
Is there a way to bypass the whole invitation/signup process and simply bulk enroll a large group of people, assuming I have a spreadsheet of usernames, email addresses, and passwords? It would be great if I could just send people pre-assigned information so they could just login right away.
If bulk enrollment is not possible, I'd still be interested in the possibility of bulk invitations. Surely someone had to import a large user base before from a forum that was not compatible with the Importer tool? How did you do it?
But that's what makes me think it's possible for a smart person (not me!) to figure out how to do it. If you can add one user with a username/password/email/role, then it must be possible to do it for multiple users, right?
