Here's a screencast that walks through the process of importing data into a Name Page via an Excel spreadsheet. Each person listed in the spreadsheet will receive a custom email message with a link that is unique to them allowing them to register with Name Coach and record their name.
Here are a couple tips to keep in mind from the screencast:
- The best way to do this is to export the spreadsheet from your event, fill in the students' information and import it back to the system - be sure to delete the tabs / columns that you don't need to import.
- The only mandatory field when you upload a new spreadsheet is the 'email', but you can supply many values in your spreadsheet, including an ID number for your users and any custom attributes that your page may be using.
If you are sending out invitations for students to record their names for the first time, you should upload the spreadsheet in the tab 'Request Names/Your Link'.
If you are trying to update information about recording users that are already on your page you should upload it at 'Admin >> Update Participants'
