E-mails setting for imported users from Trello

Why enter users e-mails?

Export from Trello does not provide user’s emails so it needs to be done manually. After assigning the e-mail to the user, connect existing comments with the e-mail address. E-mails can be assigned later on import page. E-mail address does not have to be the same as in Trello.
