Upload users via CSV
2. Uploading Users
When uploading users to the platform via a CSV file there are certain required fields that must be included in this file along with a number of additional optional fields that can be included in order to auto enrol users into courses and groups etc.
CSV = Comma separated values
CSV files are most commonly associated with spreadsheet editing software such as Microsoft Excel. When creating a new CSV file from scratch it is best advised to create a new spreadsheet document first within Excel, enter your user information then when ready to import, save the file as a CSV file (not an XLS file which is default for Microsoft Excel).
It is worth noting that you should avoid using special characters in field information such as quotes or commas.
