Test the custom report in Small Improvements

  1. Export the report from Trinet in CSV format.
  2. Head to your Admin Settings > User Management > Import Users and upload the custom report. After uploading the file, you’ll see a preview of the data.
  3. Review any errors and request adjustments to the report if any are required.
  4. Cancel and do not “Import” the file. This is because you are only testing the data and do not want to apply the changes via this manual upload process.
