Bulk Upload Preceptors

This article provides step-by-step instructions on creating multiple preceptor accounts at once. This process will create an account for a preceptor, which will give them the ability to manage and review items based on the school's operation.

If the preceptor does not wish to be in ACEMAPP, please contact ACEMAPP support at 844-223-4292.

Step 1:

From your home screen, click the "Members" tab and select the "Preceptor" under the "Affiliation" column from the drop-down menu.

Step 3:

NOTE: It is highly recommended you download a new template and use that for your upload.

Under "Step 1: Download a template", select the correct program from the drop-down menu and click the "Pull Template" button, then click "Download Template" button.

With the downloaded CSV file, open the file and fill out the required columns. Save the CSV file to your computer.

Step 5:

Select the program of the faculty accounts you are uploading.

You can also add any tags you would like applied to this group of faculty to find them quickly later on, although it is optional to do so.

You may then choose your completed CSV file by clicking the "Browse" button under the "Select the CSV" required field.

When you have verified all the data is correct, click the "Submit" button.


The system allows tags 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 | not to be confused with a capital i), and match exactly to what is in the system.

Uploading Tags will-not create new tags in the system. New tags are created during on-screen Step 2, by clicking the "Create New Tag" button.

Step 6:

Information from the CSV file is populated into the "Review Data" section.

Review and edit the information as needed.

Required fields are denoted with an orange bar.

Please complete all the required information before moving forward.

Fields that require attention are highlighted in red.

Once you have confirmed that the data is correct, click the "Submit" button to finish.

NOTE: Do not use this for already existing Preceptors to change their program. Please use the Invitation system to add already existing preceptors. For additional information, please review the related articles below.

Step 7:

Next, you will see a Processing Complete pop-up.

The pop-up confirms new accounts successfully created. Please review to make sure all your accounts are listed.

When done confirming, click the "Close" button.

If you would like to add a new group, click the "Start New List" button.

To go back to your original data and remove the accounts that are successfully created, click the "Clear Completed" button.

What should I do if my data is highlighted in red?

Please review the information entered. Fields that require attention are highlighted in red. Make a note of the column the data is in and any errors that these fields may contain. If a date field is highlighted, please verify that the Date is entered correctly (If it is a completion date, it cannot be a date in the future. If it is an email field, please verify that the email address is correctly typed).
