The system allows tags to be uploaded from the CSV file. The tag needs to be pre-existing in the system and needs to match exactly how it is in the system.


The system does allow you to upload multiple tags at once, however, the tags need to be pre-existing in the system, the tags must be separated with a verticle bar | (aka a pipe), and match exactly to what is in the system.

Uploading Tags WILL-NOT create new tags in the system.

You can create new tags during the on-screen 'Step 2' process, by clicking the "Create New Tag" button.

Step 4:

Once your CSV file/Template is completed with the required fields, click on the "Start Upload Process" button to upload your completed CSV file/Template.

NOTE: Adding a tag is an optional feature and is not required.

Next, click the "Browse" button to choose your completed file then click on the "Submit" button.

Step 6:

Information from the CSV file will be available for your review. Please review and edit the information as needed, making sure there are no errors.

Required fields that have not been filled in will be outlined in red to help you find members who are missing one of the required fields (first name, last name, date of birth, member email address, and due date).

Please complete all the required information before moving forward.

If you are attempting to upload an existing Faculty member as a Student, the "Due Date" becomes a required field.
