Admin Import

OWL's Admin Import procedure has been re-engineered to provide users with more efficiencies, additional options, and the ability to troubleshoot their imports independently. If you are a user of this premium feature we strongly encourage you to review the revised documentation before preforming your next import. [OWL Admin Import Help Documentation]

Changes to OWL Admin Import include:

  • The ability to upload a user file only (i.e., location and class files are no longer required)
  • Users can add additional users to their domain, without replacing their entire user table. 
  • Users accounts can be uploaded with temporary passwords (i.e., the user will be required to immediately create their own password upon logging in.)
  • Additional options are available for uploading assignments, notification instructions and enrollments
  • Additional class upload options including: Courses, Locations, Years, Terms, Classes and Enrollments
  • Detailed Information about the success or failure of Import attempts
