In order to successfully bulk upload/update users, the uploaded file must be in .csv format. CSV files can be generated by many programs. For example, save an Excel sheet as a .csv file. Student Information Systems (SIS) often have a method for generating reports in CSV format that can be modified to fit the format CN requires. If you do not know how to save a file in a CSV format, please check the documentation for the program you are using to create your CSV file.
There are many fields that can be included in your CSV file (please refer to the table below). Among these fields, only five of them are required:
Please note: whatever fields you decide to include, you must add the name of the fields in the first row of your CSV file. They can be listed in any order.
Two example CSV files have been attached to this article: one only includes the five required data fields, and one includes all possible fields. Please download them and take a look. You can even use these as a template for your own CSV file by removing the example data and any unnecessary fields.
The table below lists all of the possible fields that can be included.
|CN will not display this information on the website. It will only be recorded internally.|
Once the CSV file is ready, you can proceed to import the CSV file.
