Important Guidelines for the CVS files (Samples):

  • The CSV columns need to be titled the same as the field it is editing.
  • Each row should contain the user information for each member.
  • The Information in the columns need to match one or more of the selections that are in the field. If no match is found in the system, this column will be ignored and will not populate anything.
  • For the Role column, you can enter Both, Mentor, Mentee or leave it blank, if you are unsure.
  • Fields with text boxes, will import everything that is in the Column in Plain text.
  • Each row should contain the email address for each member.
  • Fields that have multiple entries can be separated in the column by a comma.
  • Fields may be left blank, they will be ignored by the import, and the member will be able to edit them afterwards.

1.4 Once the document is complete, save it on your computer or the Cloud.

1.5 From the "Import Members" section, click on Choose File at the bottom of the page.
