Manual Load Tab Follow

Using the Data Loader "Manual Load" page, you can load a CSV or Google Sheet containing either Class or Student information. This page uses the configuration specified in the Manual Configuration page.

 

Configuration Setting Summary

This page uses the configuration specified in the Manual Configuration page. This section summarizes the configuration and asks you to confirm it is correct. Please check it carefully. It is much easier and quicker to correct errors before the file has been loaded than after it has been loaded.

If the configuration is incorrect please correct it using the Manual Configuration page.

 

Locate File

In this section you specify the name of the file you want to load.

This section allows you to specify whether you are loading a CSV or Google Sheet. The page changes depending on your selection. But in both cases the goal is to specify a single file to load.

If you are loaded a Google Sheet, the “Use Document Key” feature is available as an alternative way to specify the Google Sheet to load. This is rarely used.

 

Loading Settings

This section contains an option “Override load comparison and load all records”. By default, Hapara will only update student records which it detects have changed from the previous load. If you select this option, then Hapara will update all records found in the file, regardless of whether they are the same or different from the previous load.

If you are unsure, leave the box unchecked.

This section contains an option “Allow classes from multiple years to be loaded”.  By default, Hapara will only allow classes from one school year to be loaded at a time. If you try to upload a class with a different year value from any of the existing classes in Hapara, the load will terminate. If you want classes from multiple years to exist in Hapara simultaneously, check this box.

If you are unsure, leave the box unchecked.

 

Notes:

  • Depending on the volume of data in the file, the load can take a while. The progress of the load can be followed on Status page.
  • The Data Loader will stop processing the rows as soon as it finds a blank row. That is, data below the first blank row is ignored.
  • If the name of a tab (in your CSV or Google Sheet) starts with an asterisk ( e.g. "*Welcome!" or “****Overview****” ) the Data Loader completely ignores this tab.

 

Start Load

Clicking on the “Start Load” link will begin the load of your data into Hapara.

The load can take some time. The results of the load are displayed in the Status page.
