Bulk upload is via a CSV file and is useful for uploading numerous users at once. The CSV file must be laid out in a specific way as indicated on this page in order for the data to be uploaded correctly. Within the CSV file, the columns should be titled as the information you would like to upload. The only required field is email, however admins can also add the following fields if applicable:

  • First name
  • Last name
  • User group
  • Username

There is also a capability with this feature to automatically send the uploaded users an email with their new login details.

Finally, you can also add a custom subject line that users will receive on the email that is sent out. This is so you can make it specific to your organisation to encourage learners more!
