Importing Users via CSV (Business Plan)

School owners on the Business plan have the option of importing an unlimited amount of users via a CSV file.

To do so, select the Import CSV option and upload a CSV file by clicking on the Choose File button.admin-users-add-students-import-csv.png

A properly formatted CSV for importing students and owners should include three columns: name, email, password. If you do not wish to set a password for these users, then you can leave the password column blank. However, this column must be included and labeled “password” in the CSV, otherwise, the import will not be successful. Here’s an example of what the CSV formatting for importing students and owners should look like:admin-users-add-students-or-owners-CSV-example.png

A properly formatted CSV for importing authors and affiliates should include four columns: name, email, password, and commission. If you do not wish to set a password and/or commission for these users, then you can leave those columns blank. However, the columns must be included and labeled “password” and “commission” in the CSV, otherwise, the import will not be successful. Here’s an example of what the CSV formatting for importing authors and affiliates should look like:admin-users-add-authors-or-affiliates-CSV-example.png

Deleting a User

If you'd like to delete a user for any reason, go to their user profile and click the Delete User Permanently button in the Information tab.

NOTE: Only the Primary Owner of a school can delete other owners.
