Update Users allows you to make changes to a list of users loaded from a CSV file or by copy and pasting the content of the file into an interface provided by the program.
Preparing your data for importing:
Use one row for each user record, and use one column for each data field. Please include column headings in the first row.
Use optional fields to include additional information, such as a learner ID number. (You can assign these fields after uploading your file.)
Note: You can import up to 1000 users at a time. Large files may take several minutes to import.
Fill the Excel sheet with the list of learners that you need to update and save the file using CSV format. This is how your Excel sheet may look like.
You can download a sample CSV file from here.
