If you want the system to auto-generate user data:
1. Leave the respective column(s) empty, but be sure to leave the headers intact. Auto-generated data applies to user_email, user_login, and/or password. If you leave that column blank, the system will auto-generate the data.
2. Be sure to download the User Data immediately upon completion of the upload. You will need to communicate all of the auto-generated log-in information to your students.
In the spreadsheet below, the text in red indicates the OPTIONAL fields.
Row# 2 (under the headers) indicates how the system auto-generates each piece of data:
User Login (User name) = First 2 letters of first name + first 3 letters of last name + 5 random numbers
Example: Cookie Monster: Co + Mon + 12345 = CoMon12345
Notice in the spreadsheet example, only one initial was provided for the first name. In that case just the first letter of the first name, plus 3 of the last are used to create the user login.
