Third Party Charging / Cost Centers

In the next few weeks, we're going to start moving away from device stored copy codes on our Canons to using a new fleet of HP and Canons with Cost Centers. I was looking around a bit and I see the Import Profiles section in Pharos Admin. Are there any good import file examples out there? I already use LDAP to sync all users to Pharos so ideally all I would want is:


- Charging Model - I made one called Dominican that everything would flow into (is this a bad idea?).

- Category - I'm thinking I'll have a few Categories; Departments, Majors, Clubs...

- Cost Centers - Within the Categories, I'll have Cost Centers (Fashion, Computer Science, IT, Registrar, etc) based on the Category.

- Constraints - I don't plan on using User Group Constraints since my LDAP sync groups are rather high (students, faculty, staff). It would be great if I could list LDAP / Pharos usernames in the import to make it a bit easier and then tailor it down the road.


Any suggestions or advice is most welcome.
