Data Load Wizard - GUID Required to Convert Applicant to User

When using the User data load in the Data Load Wizard, a new validation has been added. When converting an applicant to an employee via the User load in the Data Load Wizard, the user's GUID must be provided. Lack of a GUID will result in an error.

This functionality was released with the 6 December 2019 patch.


This functionality is automatically enabled for all organizations using the User load within the Data Load Wizard.


  • GUID (Global Unique Identifier) - This is a unique ID that some organizations use to identify users in their system.
