Data Loader Implementer’s Guide

Every new customer has a range of data to load into the Sage People system:

  • Current data for team members, including name, position, manager, salary, contact details, vacation entitlement and so on.
  • History data for existing team members, including employment start dates, salary history, previous positions held, absence and vacation taken and so on.

This data can be held in an existing HRIS or HCM system, in spreadsheets, or in a range of formats across the customer’s organization.

The Sage People discovery process establishes customers’ detailed requirements and produces templates mapping field labels, which may be customer-specific, to Sage People API field names. Any customer-specific fields are created before data loading can start. Data loading then takes customer data, converts it to a Sage People compatible format and uses it to populate the tables comprising the customer’s Sage People HCM system.

The Sage People Data Loader also provides a Mass Deletion option to enable bulk clearance of object records. This is a powerful feature that must be used with care – deleted items cannot be retrieved! Use Mass Deletion for clearing down test environments, for deleting complete sets of records loaded in error, or for removing records found to contain large numbers of errors that are best fixed in the source before reloading.
