Add and delete (department) coaches by CSV import

Modified on Fri, 25 Nov 2022 at 12:06 PM

Summary
Department coaches and coaches can be added to StudyCoach with a CSV import consisting of SIS IDs. Coach relationships can also be deleted. In this way, many department coaches and coaches can be added to StudyCoach at the same time. The department coaches are thus directly linked to the correct sub-account and the coaches related to the corresponding students or unrelated. 

Value
Due to privacy reasons, it is important to add department coaches directly to the correct sub-account and link coaches to only the correct students. In addition, it is efficient to use the CSV import to be able to link large groups of students directly to the right coach or to be able to add many department coaches in bulk to the right sub-account instead of doing manual work one by one.

Creating a CSV file

A CSV file is a comma-separated file that makes it easy to import or delete larger amounts of information in StudyCoach. 

Use the following CSV format to create or delete the relationship between coaches and students. A student can be associated with one or more coaches.

coach_sis_id,student_sis_id,status
COACH_SIS_1,SIS_STUDENT_1,active
COACH_SIS_1,SIS_STUDENT_2,active
COACH_SIS_2,SIS_STUDENT_1,active
COACH_SIS_2,SIS_STUDENT_3,active
COACH_SIS_2,SIS_STUDENT_4,deleted

⚠ When preparing the CSV file for coaches, note the following two things:

  • Make sure the CSV file contains a header.
  • Ensure that the IDs in the CSV file are the SIS IDs.


Use the following CSV format to create the relationship between department coaches and sub-accounts.
