The 'Import' menu option seen when right clicking on a column header within a list is only available to users with the 'admin' role.
To open this menu option up to other users, you will need to modify the UI Context Menu [sys_ui_context_menu] record and change the condition.
- Navigate to the 'Import' UI Context Menu record
- Modify the condition field so that it is checking for roles other than the currently defined one.
- Save the record.
The 'Import' menu option should now be seen when right clicking on a column header.
