To prepare the file:

  1. Create a .txt file locally on the computer from where you would like to import the group.
  2. The first line should contain three parts:
    1. UDG,Group Name,Description
    2. All files first line should always begin with UDG, followed by the name of the group as it should appear in the LEM and finally the description separated by commas.
