While Mosaic can be used to input employees (members), members can also be uploaded from other tools to Mosaic for complete budgets and details on the progress of your projects.
To upload members:
Confirm either Mosaic Support or your Customer Success Manager have enabled the members upload tool on your account. To request this tool be added to your account, reach out to our team via [email protected]
Next, download the members import template here
Ensure your data is accurate and all employees are spelled correctly. Employees will be created exactly as you’ve entered them on the import template.
Ensure employee information is consistent throughout the import template. For example, discrepancies like the following will create duplicates:
- Employee: Benjamin Smith v Ben Smith
If Mosaic is integrated with your ﬁnancial tool, ensure the names on the import template match what is in Mosaic.

Members imports will only create additional roles and rates (if they don't exist on Mosaic), but it will not update or delete any existing roles or rates.
Export your completed members import file to the .csv format. Date fields work best in .csv formats.
Navigate to Company Settings -> Members and click the 3-dot menu, Import Members and select Upload Members to upload your .csv file.
- Select the file you would like to import using the file selector or drag and drop the file here.
- Once uploaded, the software will try to auto-map the information that we need. You can also change the mapped columns by clicking the dropdown from your columns. It may take some time for the information to auto-populate in our field columns.
- Once columns have been linked, and any red rows have been addressed, select "Continue" in the top right corner and click submit data.
Note: You should see this message when it's successfully uploaded
- Thats it! Your newly uploaded members have been successfully uploaded to Mosaic. Please allow up to 24 hours for all members to finish populating on Mosaic.
