  4. Optional: Select the Defer processing of formula and permission calculations to postpone formula and permission recalculations when the file is uploaded.
    Depending on the complexity of the relationships and formulas, it's generally recommended that deferrals are enabled for imports that include more than 50,000 objects. Contact Resolver Support for assistance should you wish to complete an import with this option selected.
  5. Optional: Select the Verify file only checkbox before uploading the file to check the data has been entered correctly. If this option is selected, deselect the checkbox then re-upload the file (provided the information is valid) once you're ready to complete the import.

  7. If needed, correct any errors on the spreadsheet, save your changes, then re-upload the file.

When an import is successful, a confirmation message is displayed. If you're importing a large amount of data or data that includes role assignments, the import process may not complete immediately, depending on the amount of data, the complexity of the role's permissions, and/or the number of roles being assigned. In this case, a message will be displayed when the import is in progress and when it's completed.
