Click on Administration|Organisation and Users tab:


On Clicking the Quickly add Employees button you will get the below screen:



If this is the first time you are uploading employees to LeaveWizard you may want todownload the sample file first. You can use a spreadsheet editor like Excel or any text editor to edit the file and input your employees data. When you have finished editing the file save it and then back in LeaveWizard click the Select button to browse and select your file. You can also modify the welcome email that we are going to send to your new emails or even choose not to send one. When you are ready your screen may look like this
