New Users can be uploaded to the Sparta Cloud via CSV import. This is particularly helpful when large volumes of Users are added, and information can be copied-and-pasted from existing rosters.

    3. Sex Assigned at Birth (m or f)
    4. Birth Year (YYYY)

    2. Height (first column is ft., second column is in.)
    3. Invite ("y" for yes and "n" for no) - if an email is included, "y" will trigger an invitation email to the User
    4. Group Membership - click here for a guide to creating Groups
      1. To automatically add a User to an existing Group, type in the Group name as it appears on Cloud
    5. Tags - must be activated in Team settings. Click here for a guide to setting up Tags
      1. Tags must be entered as Main:Subgroup as they appear in Cloud. For example, "Baseball:Pitcher" or "Public Service:Police"
      2. To add more than one tag to a User, separate each by a comma and one space. For example, "Soccer:Forward, Soccer:Midfield"
    6. External ID - student ID number, jersey number, patient ID, or other alternate ID, if desired
  9. Before saving CSV for upload, clear all edits including text formatting and hyperlinks. Select all the data, click the Clear icon that looks like a rubber eraser, and click "Clear All Formats" from the dropdown list.
