Creating classrooms and adding users by using bulk import

4. The EXCEL template contain the following columns:

  • User name : Enter a unique user name which could an alphanumeric string e.g. John2.
  • User mail : Enter the user's email address. You must provide a unique e-mail address for each user account. If an email address already exists in Teamie, then the same email address cannot be associated with a user account present in the EXCEL template and during import process that user account will be skipped.
  • User pass : Enter the password for the user. Password is case sensitive.
  • User roles: Select a role for the user.
  • User First Name : Enter the user's first name.

Note: Classroom unique code is not case sensitive. For example, Superhero 101 is a classroom whose unique code can be defined as "SUPHERO_1" , "Suphero_1" or "SUPHero_1". If you try to create another classroom with any of these possible combinations by using the bulk import, then classroom creation will not take place.

Note: The fields in the template can be modified. Refer to Configuring Bulk Import Template for more information.

You can block users one by one or in bulk from the Manage Teamie page. But this can be tedious if you have to block a lot of users and have to navigate through a long list of users to select the required users from the Manage People page list. For this, you can use the bulk import template (excel sheet) to block users in bulk.

1. Configure the Bulk Import Template to check the "Status" field. Ignore this step, if the "Status" field is already checked. Also, make sure the "Username" and "Email" field are checked.

2. Click Save configuration at the bottom of the page to save the changes made to the bulk import template.

  1. User Username [name]
  2. User Email [mail]
  3. User Status [status]

6. Enter the username and email of the users that you want to block. In this case, we are blocking 5 users.

7. Select Blocked from the User Status [status] column for all the users. Save the excel sheet.

8. Once you have entered the required information in the respective columns, the excel sheet is ready to be imported into Teamie. Click Choose File to select the template.

9. Select the Template and click Open.

10. Selected template will be uploaded shortly. Click Remove in case you wish to modify the template and then re-upload it.

11. Click Import The Data Set to import the sheet.

12. The importing process will start.

13. Once the import process is successfully completed, you will be redirected to the Manage People page, where you can find the users you have  blocked using the bulk import template.

You can quickly search for users by typing his/her email id in E-email text box, then click Apply. Once the search action is completed, you will see that user in the search result. In this case we searched the user, "User1" with his email id "u1@theteamie.com". Under the "Status" column, we can see the user is Blocked.

The user will be blocked at site level. When a user is blocked at site level, the user's posts, comments, assessments access etc. are NOT removed from Teamie. This data remain intact. The user blocking is to temporarily prevent users from accessing Teamie and receive any notifications from the Teamie.
