Importing Existing Data into the Users File

SUMMARY : Steps to import data into either the HD users area or the NK users area. Both areas are used to store data about system users.

NetKeeper© Help Desk Pro stores user data in the file USERS.DAT. How this file is used depends on how you have setup your service call sets. (See your Help Desk Pro manual for more information about service call sets).

A service call set defines where your service call and "Assign To" user HD data are located and where your inventory data and system user data are located. The "Assign To" users are personnel that can be dispatched to solve problems. The system users are all the company’s employees that you support.
