Update user roles quickly - import the Excel file exported from another user
Currently, it's possible export a user's roles in Alma to an Excel file. However, the counterpart function isn't there: to be able to take the roles you've exported from one user and import them into another user's record. This would be such a time-saving feature because it would enable us to take the roles from one member of staff and apply the same to another.
Even better: bring back the proxy function for staff users that exists in Aleph.
So that updating the proxy account automatically updates all linked accounts, too.
Plus the votes from here for copying staff user accounts:
> import the Excel file exported from another user
Or rather just add 'duplicate user' in Alma.
Are the role profiles not helpful for binding a set of roles and being able to apply them in one go ?

Great, smashing idea.
Please consider also voting for https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/308173-alma/suggestions/34682068-role-profiles-enhancement:
Only _link_ the users to the profiles, so that when you update the profile the linked users are updated automatically.

I should have said as well, this would be very similar to the idea around updating calendars by uploading an Excel file: https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/308173-alma/suggestions/10936566-calendar-management-update-calendars-by-uploadin
