I am using an excel file to import users with filters for implementing "cycle" like feature.
After the import, I can see the new filters created. But the filters and users are not associated. Is it the case? I need to manually map the filters with respective users? Or should that happen automatically?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Please attach your file. You can remove user name but keep all other values in your recipient import file so i can look at the values and see whether there is everything you need in it.
With NPrinting 17.* you must keep the Excel file format as in the conversation linked by Rohit or as described in Importing users with filters and groups ‒ Qlik NPrinting.
In the linked help site page you can find also a sample Excel file that you can fill with your data.
As told by Lech, having your file will be useful to understand. You can share only few rows of data or anonimyze them, but they must be rappresentative of the real file.

My file has 3 users. In NPrinting my username (as displayed under tab User) is "Reshma Maria" (however, when I login to NPrinting server, my username is my email id) and for the others users, username is their email ids.
For other users, when I gave their email ids under "username" excel field, filters were created and got associated. But for my id, it is not working for "Reshma Maria" or my email id. The only workaround I see is to change my username from "Reshma Maria" to my email id.
But this may not be feasible for all future users. Can anyone suggest what I did wrong?
We need file,
your screenshot is missing the most important bits which are filter column and filters in filters sheet.
attach file and we can discuss further. You can change email addresses
I ran into the same issues as well as you, where some users would not have any filters added onto their user profile via import.
I found out that in the Users tab, Filters column, it does NOT import correctly if there is a comma or certain other special characters (haven't tested many other characters).
After I removed commas, my import worked properly.See below, Red didn't work, Green worked.
After an investigation, I confirm that the Filters column, at the moment, cannot contain commas because they are interpreted as separators among different filters. So, for example, "Smith, John's Filter" is interpreted as the two filters "Smith" and "John's Filter".
So use only values without commas. This will be solved in one of the following versions.
