Import users

You can import a large number of users using a .csv file. The .csv file columns should be defined so that they correspond to the user data fields in the 
BlackBerry Workspaces
 administration console: Email, Name, Aliases, Distribution Lists, and Roles. You can also create distribution lists using the .csv file that you import. You can update the .csv file to add new users and add or update user data. However, you cannot delete users by deleting them from the .csv file and re-importing it. Users must be deleted in the
