Import Class Rosters

If you would like to quickly create contact group from your GA View class rosters, follow the directions below.

Step 1: Export Roster to CSV file

First you need to get your class roster information into a Comma Separated Values file (CSV).  If you are using a different Course management system, look for commands or tools that will let you export your class list or roster into a CSV format.  In either case, steps 2-3 are the same regardless of the source of your CSV file.
