PS Import-CSV –Path E:\PowerShellScripts\CSVTemplates\Template-ClutterFalse.csv| ForEach-Object { Set-Clutter -UserPrincipalName $_.UserPrincipalName -Enable $_.Enable }

Cannot process argument transformation on parameter 'Enable'. Cannot convert value "System.String" to type "System.Nullable`1[System.Boolean]". Boolean parameters accept only Boolean values and numbers, such as
$True, $False, 1 or 0.

the CSV file has two columns: UserPrincipalName and Enable which are set to "email@domain.com" and "False" to turn clutter off

Assuming the other possible value for "Enable" in your csv is "True", try it like this:
Import-CSV –Path E:\PowerShellScripts\CSVTemplates\Template-ClutterFalse.csv |
	ForEach-Object {
		Set-Clutter -UserPrincipalName $_.UserPrincipalName -Enable ($_.Enable -eq 'True')
	}

Open in new window
