Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login as Admin->Admin center->Compensation->Action for All Plans->Group Assignment->Export Group Assignment
  2. Exclude the user whom you want to remove from the group and Import the file.
  3. Action for All Plans->Group Assignment->Import Group Assignment->Select Option "Replace Group Membership for listed users"->Import Groups.
  4.  Export the file and verify that user still exists in the list.


  • This is due to incorrect format of the file where we need to include users whom we want to remove but maintain group id as blank.


  • Correct Format of the file to remove users is to include the user id's but leave Group column as blank.
  • Please follow this format then with option Replace Group Membership for listed users, users will be removed from the group.
