Simple question... can the "bulk account creation" spreadsheet also be used to deactivate users?

Hi all –

I’m using bulk account creation, which of course involves handling an excel
spreadsheet that clearly defines all users and groups, and then uploading
that spreadsheet to have CommCare make the desired additions/adjustments
all at once.

My question: Let’s assume that I have created 100 users, and then I realize
that a new better user scheme would work best if I simply
deleted/deactivated 50 of those users.

Is there a way to designate, on the spreadsheet, certain users that you
want to be deactivated? That would be useful. (I would guess that you
Dimagi folks would not allow the feature to actually fully *delete *them,
as you guys are clearly conservative about allowing deletion… but hey,
let me know if it could.)

thanks!
Eric

Hey Eric,

Unfortunately there isn’t a way to deactivate users in bulk - there’s a
UserVoice ticket that we have you can vote on.

Thanks,
