  • Send a welcome email

    • A check mark indicates that all selected users will have that permission after the update.
    • A dash inside the box indicates that this permission will remain unchanged after the update (anyone who had the permission will keep it, and anyone without the permission will remain without).


Bulk-Upload Users

Import, create, or update multiple employees at once by importing a .CSV file rather than creating new users, one at a time. Using a .CSV file simplifies the import and demographic mapping process.

Import User Language Preferences

Administrators can specify employees' language settings before they ever log into Quantum Workplace by importing their preferred languages. This allows you to set your employees’ preferred language for a seamless experience from their first moment of using Quantum Workplace.

If for any reason an employee would like to change their preferred language, they can update it at any time from their Account Settings and override the language that was set for them through the HRIS integration or the user import.

When importing the languages manually, simply select User Default Language from the mapping options during the Demographic Mapping step.

Import Rules

When you import a file, the importer will look for any new users as well as any updates to existing users. Users who are not included in the file will not be updated or deactivated.

In order to deactivate a user, you must include them in the file and update their "Active Status" to "inactive" or whatever the equivalent value for "inactive" is within your account. You can then indicate within the import which value(s) from your Active Status column should be considered as Active Users.

New users must include Username, First Name, and Last Name. If your file contains users missing any of these values, those users will not be created. 

If you are updating information for existing users, your file must contain either Username or Employee ID (or both) in addition to the columns that include the new demographic values that you intend to update for each user. We recommend that you do not include any demographics in the file besides Username, Employee ID, and the demographic values that you are updating. The importer will not update your employees' information unless your file includes either Username or Employee ID. 

Before you import your file, please review it to make sure there are no duplicate usernames or employee IDs. 

Is managing your users manually a daunting task? Consider establishing an HRIS integration. We can establish a daily file feed from your HRIS system to Quantum Workplace to automatically update your employee information. 


Access Manager (Legacy)

In this section:

Video Overview

Watch this 2-minute video for an overview of the Access Manager tool.


View User Access

Administrators can access the user management tool from their census Analytics page by selecting the Team Select button, then Access manager.

Access Manager allows you to do the following:

  • Review the Organization Structure.
  • View / edit the users assigned to different branches.
  • Export the Organization Structure to an Excel document.
  • Focus on certain portions of the Organization Structure using the filter on the left.
  • Set whether or not certain users can create Commitment Plans.

Add Users to a Branch

  1. Click the plus icon to add users to that branch.
  2. Enter their name in the search box, and select whether or not the user should be able to create Commitment Plans on that branch. 
  3. Click Add.

Filter My View to Specific Branches of the Organization

For large trees, you can filter your view to make it easier to see details for a specific branch. Click the branch you would like to view in detail. 

The selected branch then becomes the top branch in the Detail View.

How to Remove Access

To remove a user's access to a particular branch, click the X next to their name on the branch you would like to remove them from. 

Removing a user from a single branch only removes that user's access to that branch in the organization. If you want to completely remove someone's access to Engagement Survey data, you must remove them from every branch they've been added to, if applicable.
