We have been working hard in the past months in order to make many improvements to the import process. As a result, there have been many changes in the way you import your files.
First, you need to download and install a new tool called Accudemia Data Exchange. It’s currently available only for Windows XP or newer, Linux and Mac OS versions are still under development.
Once you download and run the installer, just follow the few steps described there; it will download and install all the required files. You might be prompted to install some missing Windows components you don’t have installed, you have to accept and install those components too. It’s just a couple clicks to accept the installation of all the required components.
After it completes, the application will start and ask you to login:
The User ID and the Password are the same you use to access Accudemia. The Domain can be the address you use to access Accudemia, or just the first part of it (both will work). For instance, you can enter somecollege.accudemia.net, or just somecollege.
Now, you are logged in the Accudemia Data Exchange control panel.
Click on “Create New Import Task” to select which file has to be imported, and how it will be done. Follow the steps described there, they might vary depending on what you are going to import to Accudemia.
For instance, if you are going to import students enrollment, you might have something like this:
Complete the remaining steps to save the changes. To run the job and import the file to Accudemia, you have to click on View Details (under the job’s name), and then on Run Import Now:
After a few seconds (or minutes if there’re thousands of records), you will see a green light indicating the information was successfully uploaded to Accudemia:
And congratulations, you’re done!! After a few more seconds, the information will be available in Accudemia.
