Upload - Gender question for all old users - CSV import | Forum

Brian Feb 28 '15
1. The install was successful

2. The bug fix was successful

3. An upload is successful

4. New user import is successful

BUT, why are all my old users being questioned about their gender when they log back in, although this was entered a long time ago? Are fields from old users being edited as well during the import process?

Thanks for you input and help. Love the plugin...saves time!

Brian, this is how plugin works, it's kind of replace the profile questions, not the values but the question itself. Moreover the users import implies that it will be done before the website goes live, which is why CSV acts like that asking old users to update the question values.

So if a value is entered in the csv file that not everyone has been asked, according to the roll questions setup, then it automatically adds this to the required questions?

Thanks Ross, I kind of thought it was working like this.

No, Brian, it updates the questions, kind of recreates it, which is why the users are required to update the value even though it's been already entered.

Sounds good thanks.
