Employee Central - Employee data imports

New UI:

If you are in new UI and click on 'switch to previous imports version' link shown on new UI then it goes to old UI:

In case, if you wish to switch back to new UI, you can do either of below:

  • Click on 'back' button of browser to come back to new UI, or just go back to Admin Center and come again to Import Employee Data to see new UI. The switching to old UI is just at that point of time and for that specific action when you click on the link. As soon as you go to any other page and comeback, the new UI will be the one which you would see by default.
  • In most cases, logout and login should make the new UI come back as its just for that moment it went to old UI, but it returns to more customizable and recommended new UI again.

New UI provides more flexibility of importing the different available columns and it is the advanced UI we can use during our imports.
