I've got an internal company website with LearnDash (an LMS) installed and we've added wpForo as a forum for the community. We are about to bulk import around 900 users using a bulk import tool meant for the LMS (Uncanny Owl Toolkit), which also lets us set meta data for users in the csv by adding the appropriate column header.
Are the custom fields associated with this this add-on stored in the usermeta table? I'd like to be able to bulk import users with their data, like company name, phone number, location, etc. and have it populate into the forum user profiles so we have access to it at the site level, but can also leverage it as searchable filters through the member directory.
Is there any hope here? If not, is there any way to bulk set Custom Fields within wpForo? I wouldn't mind creating a separate spreadsheet or something with different parameters as it would still be faster and more reliable than telling users to fill in their data themselves.
Let me know what would and wouldn't work. This has the potential to be a great internal collaboration and networking tool if we can set these users' data.
