Import a List of Students to Your Account (Teacher)
Pro-Tip 1: To import a list of students successfully, you must upload a file with the Comma Separated Values (.csv) format. It also needs to have the correct title on each of the columns. For specifics on creating the Comma Separated Values (.csv) file correctly, check out our guide on How To Create A Comma Separated Values (.CSV) Format File.
Pro-Tip 2: Usernames must be unique across all Typing.com. If you see an error telling you that the username is being used by another user, you must edit the username. e.g. if the username fernandocote is already being used, you should change it to:
Pro-Tip 3: Usernames cannot have more than 30 characters. If your school domain is long you might be exceeding the 30 character limit.
Pro-Tip 4: Even though the inclusion of an email address for a student is not mandatory on Typing.com, when uploading the CSV file, the data field header HAS to exist.
