Join George Papazian for an in-depth discussion in this video Batch uploading users, part of Moodle Administration Essential Training.
- We know how to create users one at a time,…but let's look at how to batch upload them.…So I'll go over to, "Upload Users".…You're going to need a CSV file populated with users…for this, but if you're a premium Lynda user,…I've got one ready for you in the exercise files,…it's called "users.csv"…You have to create columns with types of information,…and then populate it with users.…You can use a program like Microsoft Excel…to create one, but remember to save it…as a .csv format.…Alright so back to this page.…
I have four fields here.…For the first one, I grab my csv file…by clicking on the "choose a file" button,…and then again over here on "choose a file".…And here's my users.csv file.…Now I'll just upload this file.…Now I can see my users.csv file…listed in this field.…The second field asks how the file separates the values.…The csv acronym stands for "comma separated values",…so for most imports you'd leave this "csv delimiter setting"…as just a comma.…Similarly, UTF-8 encoding is generally the industry…standard these days,…
