How do I import multiple names for "Subscribed by:" field in RTC - via CSV file ?


Steve Woodbridge (1352124) | asked Apr 15 '14, 4:42 p.m.
I want to import data via CSV file to create work items. I also want to have the CSV file contain several names in the "Subscribed by" column. How do I store the names in the CSV files so that they would both (or more) be imported and added to the Subscribe by attribute. Is there a delimiter value that should go between each name ? If so, how do I determine what the delimiter value is ?

The best way to determine something like this is to do an export of a workitem with similar data you want to import.  In this case, when you export a workitem that has multiple subscribers the generated csv will contain the different subscriber ids on separate lines.  It should look something like:

"Id","Subscribed By"
"67","bob
deb
marco"

Add your other user ids on their own line then import and the additional ids will be subscribed.
