Cluttered class lists make finding the right student at the right time a drag. But who has the time to go through and archive old classes, merge students, create new classes etc, right? Well now - anyone can do it in minutes using .CSV files.
We've updated the CSV import page to make managing class lists a lot easier.
WHAT IS A .CSV FILE?
.CSV is a file format which can be exported from Excel, Numbers, Google Sheets... any spreadsheet software really.
TO ADD NEW CLASSES:
If you're new to Makers Empire, you can use .CSV files to quickly add all your students and classes at once.
Simply Follow these steps to upload your new class(es) with a .CSV file
TO TIDY UP YOUR EXISTING CLASS LISTS:
If you're a Makers Empire veteran, you can tidy up ALL your existing classes in a few steps:
1. Archive all your old classes. Don't worry, nothing will be deleted. This will put all existing students in the Archived Students class.
2. Follow these steps to upload all your current classes with a .CSV file
3. Any students who are included in your up to date class list will automatically be moved from Archived Students and assigned to their correct class. Any 'left over' student accounts, maybe graduates or transfers, will be safe in Archived Students if you do ever need to find them again.
You can access the CSV Import option anytime by clicking Class Management on the left menu and selecting Classes. Click the more options (3 dots) menu next to any class name and select CSV Import.
*NOTE: If you're a Google Classroom user, keep managing your class lists with Google Classroom.
Try it yourself now.
