New! Register Multiple Users With A Single File

by | Mar 6, 2018 | Announcements

Here at DigitalChalk, we are always looking for ways to streamline the administration part of your online training solution. So, as promised, we are pleased to announce our new Register Multiple Users feature! Read on to see how you can use this new feature to quickly and easily register learners into your DigitalChalk courses via a CSV file.

How do I use Register Multiple Learners?

Before you begin registering learners, make sure you’ve completed the following:

    • Any learners you want to register must first be added as DigitalChalk users. If you need to add a lot of learners, you can use our Import Users feature to add them all at once.
  • Create the CSV file for learners you want to register.  The CSV file must have an Email Address field if your learners log in with their email address, or a Username field if your learners log in with their username.  If you want to import optional grade percentages or course completion dates for your learners, make sure those fields are also included in your CSV file.

Once you’ve created the CSV registration file, follow the steps below to complete the import:

1. Click the Administration tab, then click Users from the left side menu.

2. Click Register Multiple Users from the top of the left side menu.DigitalChalk: User Menu

The Register Multiple Users upload screen is displayed.

3. Choose a course to register learners to, then click Upload and select the CSV file you want to upload.

4. The Register Multiple Users field matching screen is displayed with the fields from your CSV file. Matching the fields from your CSV file to fields in DigitalChalk is easy. Simply click the drop-down menu next to each field to see the fields you can enter for the learners you are registering, then click the field that matches that field on the CSV file. To be able to complete the import you must match either the Email Address or Username field.
