Like with other imports, you'll need to download the import template, make a copy of it, and then fill it in. Follow the steps in the section below for help with this process.

This article is meant to be a resource to help you download and complete the import spreadsheet on your own. However, if at any point you have questions that aren't being answered by this article, don't hesitate to reach out to your implementation coach or account manager. They're here to help!

Importing Your Recruiting Task Lists and Tasks into Sisu

  1. Use one of the following templates:

    • Custom template: If you've already imported your users, ask your implementation coach for a custom template. This template will allow you to select users from a drop-down list.

    • Excel template: Click here to download this template.

    • Google Sheets template: Click here to download this template. Make a copy of it once it's downloaded.

      Note: One way to make a copy of a Google Template is to open the template and go to File > Make a Copy. If the "Make a Copy" button is grayed out, check out this article in our Knowledge Base for some troubleshooting tips.

  2. Open your copy of the template, and enter as much information as you can. If there's an asterisk in a column header, the column is required.

    Note: If you want an in-depth overview of the template, see the section in this article called Quickly Understand the Task List Import Spreadsheet.

  3. When you're finished, save your changes.

  4. Reach out to your implementation coach, and they'll load everything into Sisu for you.

Customizing Trigger Dates for Tasks

Sisu offers a variety of dates that you can use to trigger tasks in a task list (e.g., MLS Live Date). However, you can add your own customized dates to the list of trigger dates. We have an article that walks users through each step of this process. For help completing this process, click here to open that article.

*IMPORTANT*: Remember to use the Recruiting Task List Template found in this article instead of the template found in the other article.
