If you have the settings to Manage Teams & Users, you can upload a spreadsheet to Vidyard to update users' profile information, including their names, job titles, and personal calendar links.
Vidyard uses information from users' profiles to enhance and improve your teams' experience with certain features:
- personalizing Team Actions with users' names, roles, and calendar links
- automatically adding users' name and role to the intro banner in the browser extension
- including users' names in Insights graphs and reports, in place of an email address
Go to the Users page in your account to download a list of users (
.csv format). You can then edit the spreadsheet and re-upload the list to Vidyard to update your users' profiles.

Frequently asked questions
Can I invite new users by adding them to the CSV file?
No, the Bulk Update Users option only allows you to update existing users' profile information. Any new rows added to the spreadsheet are ignored when you re-upload the file to Vidyard. Similarly, removing rows does not delete or deactivate users.
If you want to add new users with a CSV spreadsheet, you can do this separately under Admin > Users in your account.
Can I switch what Teams my users are on by editing the CSV?
No, you can only move users between Teams on the Users page in your account. Any changes to the Teams column in the spreadsheet are ignored when you upload the file to Vidyard.

.csv format. Other file types (

.csv file that Vidyard provides when you download a list of users from your account.
