Create users and assign to a class via CSV upload

Hello,

 

I am trying to import students to classes using a CSV upload.  The student accounts will be new.  Currently I am uploading an "update users" file once to create the accounts and then separately uploading an "update roster" file to assign those students to a class.  Is it possible to package these files into the same .zip folder under the partial upload system to do both steps at once, or do I have to do this via two separate upload steps? 

 

I know this may seem like a strange request, but it would actually save me some time if I could do both files in the same upload.  Currently I get an error as the system seems to try to process the roster file before the user file and the user doesn't exist (yet!)

Dear Sowmya,

 

I did see that article and related resources, but it does not answer my question.

 

Thanks,

You should be able to pack the files into the same .zip folder under the partial upload system. If you are facing issues uploading files, I recommend reaching out to support for further assistance.
