This page outlines how to fill in excel sheets for import of data to Talent Manager. Below you will find a number of sheets, divided up by language. You will also find a downloadable copy of everything on this page.
First please contact your Implementation Consultant or the Consulting department at HR Manager.
Proceed to downloading the appropriate file for your needs and fill it in using the following guide.
Customer Guide to HR Managers Import 1.84 sheet
Purpose This guide will walk you through importing data to Talent Manager using the Import 1.8 sheet. The sheet allows you to convert information from your existing systems to a format which can be imported into HR Manager’s Talent Manager system. When the sheet is filled with the data you wish to import, you can send it back to your Implementation Consultant, who will validate the data and import it to your system.
To do this, you must enter all desired information from your own systems into the columns. This can usually be exported from your own systems to either an .xlsx or .csv file which can then be opened with Excel and copied to the Import sheet using Copy-Paste.
Note that the top row is locked and cannot be edited so you must as a minimum stand in row 2 before pasting data. Each row represents a new employee and each column is a data field for their profile.
It is not possible to add or remove columns in this sheet. For a guide in the file itself, see the tab named Guide.
How much data do I need to import?
You can decide how much information you need in your HR Manager system, but as a bare minimum, you must include Email address, First Name and Last Name for the import to work.
Furthermore, to have your employees mapped correctly in the system, Department and Manager must also be added. These fields are all marked with an * in the header for your convenience. All other fields are optional, but we recommend that you fill in as many as possible.

Full Time Equivalence (FTE)

This allows organizations with many part time employees to see how many full-time positions their employees equate to
