You will receive a confirmation email once the upload has been completed, or noting if there were any issues with the import.


Teamwork Desk uses the format described in the Go CSV package.

You can download a sample file to use as a template. The sample .CSV file includes the following columns:

  • Name
  • Domains
    • When adding multiple domains, they should be separated by a comma and a space as shown in the sample file.
  • Permissions - set company permissions for ticket access in the Customer Portal to view all or own tickets.
    • Personal tickets only
      • All customers associated with the company will only be able to view their own personal tickets in the Customer Portal.
    • All company's tickets
      • All customers associated with the company will be able to view each other's tickets in the Customer Portal.
      • Note: The company tickets permission option is available on Premium subscriptions and above.
    • You can set and manage permissions for ticket access directly in Desk via the company's settings. For example, you can set the default permission to view own tickets, and provide additional company ticket access (all tickets) on an individual basis.
