Register Students via CSV

Last updated by Rachel Cohen on March 31, 2017 16:59

This method can be used by all paid teachers to onboard via a spreadsheet. This method is the quickest onboarding strategy and allows the teacher to control email, name, and password associated with a student account.

Navigate to the Students button at the top of the page. On the next page, you’ll see two tabs, Students, and Groups. Select the Groups tab. Here you’ll see one or more groups. Learn about creating new groups here.

To the right of the group you’d like your students to join, click the gear icon. On the next group management page, you’ll see a charcoal button that says ‘Register Students.’ Click this button.

There are two options on this page, a text box and upload via CSV option. The CSV option is on the right.

Either download the template on the page, or create your own CSV file with the appropriate emails, usernames, and passwords for your students. Make sure to include a header row like in the example, and to include all three of these pieces of information for each user. 

After uploading the CSV, ThingLink will create accounts for your students that reflect the included information. They can log in with that information and do not need to register. They never need to use your group invitation code.
