Support > Help > Patron Manager > Importing Patron Data
When matching has been completed, you then tell the Importer to perform the update.
BiblioTECH data is not affected until the [Update] button is clicked. Therefore, you can cancel out at any stage prior to performing the update without affecting your data.
BiblioTECH records that have been matched with import entries will be updated. Import entries flagged to be added will result in new BiblioTECH records.
The update process will only update those fields that you have mapped. Other fields will NOT be updated.
If you map a field and the import file has no entry in that column, the BiblioTECH field will be cleared
During the update process, if the import entries include a Group/Level that is not defined in BiblioTECH, a new Group/Level entry will be automatically added (with default settings)
Any BiblioTECH Patron that was un-matched with an import entry will be moved into the group $UnMatched. However, BiblioTECH Patrons in a group that contains the words "staff," "teacher" or "other" will be not be moved.
