4. Once complete, RosterElf will generate a report similar to one of the two screenshots below. RosterElf will display an error message if the CSV is not formatted correctly. In this case, you will need to go back, fix the CSV file and try again.

NOTE: The import will not take effect until you confirm in the next step.
