Stile school admins have the ability to set up Subjects in bulk using the CSV Importer tool.
In most cases it is easiest (and recommended) for students to be added to Stile via class code or email. However if you have a large number of students or a complex Class structure, it's also possible to import a bulk file of student and teacher emails to be added all at once. This tool is only available to Stile school admins. It does not manage password information or any other account data; it is only for mass enrolment.
It is important to understand how Stile Subjects and Classes are structured before you continue. You can read more here.
Create a spreadsheet with the following five cells in the top row:
- subject code
- subject name
- student class name
Warning: These five column headers must be included exactly as they are written here in order for the CSV Importer tool to recognise them.
The contents of the subject code column are optional and can be left blank, however the header must be included. The subject code becomes helpful when you want to create more than one Subject with identical Subject names.
The Subject is where resources and students are organised in Stile. In the example spreadsheet above, one Subject (Year 8 Science - Mr McD) will contain two Classes (8A and 8B). This way the teacher only needs to create a single set of resources to share to the two year 8 classes.
This should either be student or teacher for each account. It can not be left blank.
Student class name
Classes are how students are organised within a Stile Subject. In the example above, students are sorted into 8A and 8B. The Class names must each be less than 10 characters. Leave this cell blank for teachers. Teachers are not associated with specific Classes in a Subject, and so they should only be enrolled once per Subject with no student class name assigned.
Ensure that each email address is correct and able to receive emails. Stile uses these addresses to send email invitations and as account login credentials. If a single email address is invalid, then the entire file upload process can fail.
Upload the spreadsheet
The spreadsheet must be saved as a .CSV file.
Click Manage staff on the home page, just below the school's name.
Click Import data to continue. Read the notes on the following page to ensure your data is accurate, and then click Upload a CSV file.
Upon uploading the file, a summary of changes will appear on the page as well as a detailed list of changes. Make sure the details are correct, and then click Apply these changes now to import your school data.
Emails listed in the .CSV file will receive invitation emails as soon as the changes are applied. If they are new to Stile, then they will be prompted to create accounts when they click the link in the email.
Questions? Concerns? Email a copy of the file to firstname.lastname@example.org and our Support team will be happy to assist.
