6. Click the Download Template link if you do not have a template available and populate the spreadsheet with the appropriate fields. Regarding the account creation template, populate the spreadsheet with each user’s information: PersonID is a unique identifier (e.g. employee ID, CAS ID if applicable, or the user’s email address), First Name, Last Name, Email Address, Username (should be the user’s email address to prevent duplicate usernames), and External ID (which is optional; can be an individual’s SIS ID if applicable or can be left blank).

8. The first time you create accounts, you will need to map fields for all required fields (red asterisk) using the pulldown menus as follows:

a. Person ID → PersonID

b. External Id Number → ExternalID (leave blank if this was left blank in the template)

c. First Name → FirstName

d. Last Name → Last Name

e. Email Address → EmailAddr

f. User Name → UserName

 

9. Click the Continue button. If any errors are found in the Results column, click the View Errors and Detailed Results button to see the error details. Fix the errors in your CSV template and repeat steps 7– 9.

10. Indicate whether, Yes or No, you would like to send a welcome email to all newly created accounts notifying them to update their password.

Note: If you login to Taskstream AMS via login.watermarkinsights.com, the Welcome Email functionality you are seeing displayed in this guide does not apply to your setup. Please select "No" on the Welcome Email functionality being described in this video. All new users you create will need to first access their account via login.watermarkinsights.com/find-email and they will receive a password reset email following that method. If you have any questions, please contact support@watermarkinsights.com.
