Great module to manager large amount of users and very good support. Thank you very much Peter for providing us with a customized version to disable logging allowing us to manage large updates. Max.

This module is wonderful, if not just for the ability to "update" users from an exported CSV. This is a must have module for DNN power users in my opinion!

A great and needed addition to any site. Gives the peace of mind that a new site can be created and all of the users accounts,passwords and profiles can be recreated.

Great module! Saved me lots of headaches while rebuilding my site. Everything works as advertised!

This app has worked flawlessly for me for several years through frequent and useful updates. It is simple, straight-forward, and affordable. Customer support (should one need it) via email is prompt and friendly. Highly recommended.

I needed to migrate 103 users from an old version of DNN to a new version of their website that we being developed separately on a QA server. Saved me a WHOLE LOT of typing - all roles, passwords and users done. Less than 10 minutes and they were all moved over. Yay. Thanks, PHDobson!

I used this product way back in the day and it's a pretty decent product. One thing I'd like to see added in the future is for it to pull the Last Login Date and/or Last Activity Date so that it would could be used to delete users who haven't logged in since a specified date.

We will be adding this feature in the next update. Thanks for the suggestion.
I purchased this module to transfer hundreds of user accounts from one portal to another. Several user accounts were on both sites and needed the profile information synced up. The profiles contained approximately 250 fields of data a piece. The module was easy to use and installed without any problems. The transfer and sync of the user profiles worked perfectly and saved me a great deal of time. This was worth every penny. Mark Luffred

When I began a site upgrade from Classic ASP to DNN I needed a tool to import users from the ASP site. At that time we were on DNN 5.6.1. Grabbed a copy of BUM v3.1, ran a couple of tests. All good then forgot about it until yesterday when it is time to take the new site live (now 5.6.3). Fired up BUM to be greeted with a message that 5.6.3 is not supported.
Shot off a quick Help to Peter (BUM), said he would have a new version for 5.6.3 for me within 24 hrs. True to word v3.2 delivered less than 24hr. Great support. Thanks Peter.

Excellent module. Does as advertised. I found it easiest to export from SQL Server table to a csv file & import via .csv file (I personally didn't user XML). Just need to change headers of csv file to correspond to DNN fields like displayname, firstname, postalcode, etc. Can add new fields & roles to your heart's content. Though its obvious after the fact, the cocumentation should mention that when importing to existing DNN fields, the csv header columns much match exactly (ie firstname not first_name). The UI for the SQL queries could be a bit more flexible, perhaps allowing sql wildcards or more dropdown equality/comparison options. Bulk User Manager includes everything that User Import Export does, plus it includes the ability to bulk delete and update, which the DNN Admin==>User module doesn't. This allows you to import thousands of users with a particular field set or a unique role set, and then delete those thousands of users in one fell swoop via Bulk Mgr.

Suggestions will be taken on board. Thank you for the feedback.
I have used this excellent module to manage the access to a website for Driving Instructors that are franchisees or our company.
The generation of the file to perform the imports is really easy and the fact that I can assign different roles at import time is briliant.
By far the best part is that after sales service has been brilliant, when you ask a question you get a prompt and helpful response.

It doesn't work for me. Variety of errors. Support came back initially but then dried up. Money wasted.

We did provide prompt support the for issue that is mentioned here and then did not hear back from the client. Our offer for further assistance was the last communication we sent - we did not hear back.
I needed to quickly update a security role with new expiration date for over 200 employees. This module did it in 5 seconds flat. Fantastic! Worked like a champ!

I tried using the $$$ modules and was about to give up entirely and ask users to re-create their accounts. I saw this and let me tell you... IT SAVED ME!! I couldn't believe that this 20 dollar module kicked all those other modules out of the water. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

I am happy to say this module caters to all my user import / export needs. (I'm currently building a totally new version based on a new install package on my local test server, so I needed a quick and easy way to import the users from my old live site.) This module saved me a lot of time, and the user-friendliness is high. Top marks.

This little gadget is great. I have used it several times now and it works like a charm everytime. Worth the cash, so if you need it don't hesitate - just buy it, you'll be glad you did.

As like many of us, I have been working on a project with tight time frames. I sent an email to support through the SnowCovered ticket system and had a response with in a few hours. The resolution came the next day and worked on the rev. Thanks Peter...

Upgrading from DNN 4.9.1 to 5.1.4 was a disaster, we wasted days. We gave up and chose to just rebuild our site by hand only to realize that we could not import our users. This package really did save us! It did just what we wanted. LIFE SAVER!
It could use some helpful hints on each page, but we figured it out.

great, streamlined, powerful yet simple module.

It did exactly what I needed. When I contacted them with a few questions about the product I got a very fast response.

The SPAM Stopper by PHDobson is a simple effective little module. It's fairly easy to install and configure, and does the job without any hassle. The only thing stopping me from giving it 5 stars is that I feel it would be even better if it was packaged as a DNN module and could be installed and configured without ANY web.config modifications. As it is though, it's about as simple as it could be, and is powerful.

This module is worth ten times the asking price. I had the hopeless task of re-creating - "cleaning up" a database of thousands of membership records from numerous disparate tables and importing these records into DNN -- assigning records/users to unique roles and custom profile properties. After spending several frustrating hours merging and joining tables using SQL tools, I stumbled upon this "gem of a module." Using the Member Number as a key, I was able to import all the critical records from numerous disparate tables into a new DNN portal. The additional functionality of the module to "spew out" detailed error messages after import -- allowed me to note and correct records as I went along. This module -- if used properly -- can really help you clean up a "messy" database. And, BOY did I have that job!
Once I imported my records to DNN, this fabulous module allowed me to export my records to XML using values from profile fields - allowing me to check the imported data again

Awesome customer service!!
I bougth this module 8 months ago and ran into a problem yesterday. I sent an e-mail to their support. Unbelievable, i got an e-mail reply within 2 hours and a walk through on how to resolve my problem PLUS advice on installing the latest updates.
Peter, thank you so much for your support. you are fabulous.

Good little module. I did have a problem with it though in that it gave an exception error before it finished my import and dumped me back to the main page with no indication on how far it got, leaving me to try and work out how far it got. I don't know if this was caused by the module timing out or my website.
Apart from that problem it worked fine and was easy to understand and use. It certainly saved me a huge amount of time doing it manually and for $20 you can't go wrong.

Thanks for the feedback. We always encourage our clients to submit a help request when they have problems - we do stand behind our products and are keen to ensure they are bug free.
VERY cool module that does exactly as it is supposed to work! We replaced a crappy DNN Masters module with this one that works flawlessly, is well written and documented, and is very well worth the small price! HIGHLY RECOMENDED!!

Outstanding Module!! Had a minor glitch once implemented, but this was resolved within 24 hours. Keep up the great work!
posted on 6/12/2008
An excellent product. Did exactly what it promised. There was a minor issue with its treatment of administrator accounts which, although I could workaround, I reported and received an updated version within a few days that resolved the issue. So top marks for both function and support!
posted on 6/10/2008
Some features are not available. Would like to see the capability to Force Password Change upon login and also have the Registerd date as an export option. Otherwise this is probably one of the easiest modules to use.
posted on 6/5/2008
The features mentioned are going to be part of the next release of the software. This will be a free upgrade to all current users.
Easy to implement - just add the DLL and make the appropriate (and easy to do) web.config change and magically all the email addresses on the site are effectively cloaked.
I was very pleased with this purchase.
posted on 6/5/2008
Excellent product and excellent support, very highly recomended.
We had a problem with our portal unrelated to the module and we were helped round the problems this caused. Brilliant.

I found this program easy to install, I thought! However, I did not read it proprly, and when I asked for support (on a Sunday, mind you!) I had an instant reply by PH Dobson (Peter), who not only followed up promptly on each e-mail, but also supported me completely in every way he could. I was most impressed, the program works brilliantly, and is worth every cent! I am thrilled with this nifty little program, and am delighted by the prompt, efficient and excellent support (way beyond good service!) given to me by Peter. Thanks Peter, you deserve the accolades and appreciation and admiration, and the team for the fabulous program.

I needed a solution for moving users from an existing application to DNN 4. This is a well thought-out approach and easy to implement. It took me less than an hour to normalize my existing data and complete the import. VERY GOOD VALUE!
posted on 3/24/2008
Near perfect export/import at a great price. Wonderful solution for a potentially time consuming project. I looked around Snowcovered for a simple bulk import/export module. (Either I find one, or, I spend most of the day manually transferring users from 4.0.3 to 4.8.1.) This module did the job in just 10 mins, including installation time! (My only suggestion is that the wizard should warn about password issues before doing the upload, thus giving the user a chance to modify the XML document before uploading. Minor point though, the wizard did notify me clearly which users failed and why. I can edit the file and upload the ones that failed.)

I migrated the DNN version 3.1 to 4.8 and "Bulk User Manager" was very fast. Excellent module!

Excellent tool. It's very useful to export/synchronize user accounts from one language portal to another language portal and saves us a lot of time.
posted on 1/22/2008
Awesome module - superior to the competition. Was easy to use, I knew what the module was going to do, and it even provided a way to download the user file that it created - makes more sense than making me download via FTP. Suport was very good - provided an earlier version to work with my 3.1.1 DNN portal.

Great product! Very easy to use. Imported 2,000 users without a hitch. Support is also outstanding. Definitely worth the price.

This is a very nice simple module that shouldn't be missing on any DNN installation in the unfortunate days of SPAM spiders all around...
posted on 6/6/2007
Now this is a class-act product. It correctly handles CSV and XML files (producing valid XML output) and you don't have to be a developer yourself to get your data formatted correctly for import. It is quite a bargain as priced as well. I'd highly recommend this module for site admins with numerous user accounts.

works great - got my users transfered from another portal without a problem
posted on 4/16/2007
What can I say? It works! Great piece of software at a great price! Just FYI: I had one issue that was DNN related involving the length of passwords (DNN 4.4.1 has a default min length of 7, I was trying to import passwords of a shorter length). Contacted Peter via snowcovered and he spotted the issue and responded in a very timely manner.

Module does what it says. Developer responds to bug reports and fixes them. One of the better Snowcovered experiences I must say.
posted on 11/30/2006
I give this 5 stars simply becasue it can eaisly be used to import user data from one system such as a Human Resource. Then import and register the users in DNN. Also, allows updating information as an import option, this is a BIG plus. In our case we manange the clients data in ONE HR system and would be foolish to tell our users to go here and there just to update a phone number. Its all taken care of during the update - import. So now the user information is listed the same everywhere. The Gold Source of data is in one location but ths tool allows us to sync it to DNN - GREAT !

Does what it says on the tin :)
As long as you have access to your server, this is easy to install, easy to configure via web.config and works with 4.3.4, cloaking with any of the three options
I had a small issue discovered late one evening, Peter had a fix for me the following morning. Great service.

Excellant product, performs like a charm, I was able to import nearly 3,000 user accounts flawlessly. Their tech support is quick to respond to any issues.

This module doesn't even install on DNN 3.x. What kind of developer sends out a PA that doesn't work?
Don't buy this module. Spend your money on one that works. I paid $20 and it has been a complete waste.
posted on 6/13/2006
Simple but highly effective. Super for backups, identifying and resolving user access issues, and site housekeeping. Supports CSV and XML files (both in and out). Recommended for peace of mind!

Holy cow! Simple user interface and worked the first time.
Ported 116 users, their user roles, role assignments, and passwords from one portal instance to another without a hiccup.
And it was even documented (something most modules lack).
Greatness. Just greatness..
