The manual load method provide template Class and Student files for you to populate. These templates are build to exactly match the way you want to use the Hapara products (as you specify in the Manual Configuration page) - making the templates simpler to complete
The manual load method has these steps:
- Log in to the Hapara Admin Console.
- Browse to the Data Loader menu option
- Select the Manual Configuration link
- Use the Data Loader Manual Configuration page to state how you will use several Hapara features.
- Using the template Class and Student files (either Google Sheets or CSVs) provided on the Manual Configuration page, populate the templates with your Class and Student data, readying them for loading into Hapara.
- Share your Classes and Student spreadsheets with your Institutional Content Owner user (named school.apps.owner for most schools).
- Use the Data Loader Manual Load page to start the load of your Class file (Google Sheet or CSV) into Hapara.
- Loading large files can take a while to complete. Use the Data Loader Status page to monitor the progress of your load or to view the results of historic loads. You can also track any errors that may result from your data load. Also refer Data Loader Status page guide
- When the Class load is finished, use the Data Loader Manual Load page to start the load of your Students file (Google Sheet or CSV) into Hapara.
- Again use the Data Loader Status page to monitor progress.
With the Manual Load Method you must provide Class and/or Student files to load into Hapara. To create the file(s):
- Start with the template Google Sheets or CSVs provided on the Manual Configuration page - these files match your configuration options.
- Combine them with your data (e.g. from your Student Information System) to create populated files.
- Load your populated Classes file into Hapara using the Manual Load page
- Then load your populated Students file into Hapara using the Manual Load page
At the start of the school year, you want the Class and Student files to load all your classes and students. During the school year, you may want to incrementally add and delete classes and also add and remove teachers. The article Making Changes to Classes and Students explains how you can do this.
