Bulk Add Users to Course Groups

Bulk Add Users to Course Groups

OVERVIEW

You can add a large number of existing users to course groups by uploading a text (.csv) file to perform a bulk action. In order to bulk upload users to course groups, these groups must already exist in the relevant course on your Pluto LMS.

FILE FORMAT AND INPUT FIELDS REQUIRED

You can use the bulk upload template attached at the bottom of this page. Simply add the usernames, group names and course short name to the template.

For example:


Note:
  1. The group names must be exact matches to that recorded in your LMS. In the relevant course, this can be found in "Course admin" > "Users" > "Course groups

  1. The course short name must be an exact match to that recorded in your LMS. In the relevant course, this can be found in "Course admin" > "Edit settings"


You can also add users to more than one course group at a time. To do this simply add additional columns with the headings group2, group3, group4, etc. to your Excel sheet.
