Bulk Create Community Users

Folks:

I NEVER worked with communities before and just received a request.
How we can bulk create community users? My company currently creates them as a one off but that's not economically viable when we have 100+ people going through a training class in a given week. Ideally, we'd upload a spreadsheet or something similar. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Although Mayank has already given you the help on how to bulk upload customer community users. You can also "Enable Self-Registration in the Community" for your users and can probably look into other solutions too.
Here's the link you can refer to:
