You can find the user group ID in the “Information” tab of each user group.

  2.  Click the “Load users” button.
  3. Select an Excel template – You can choose between:
    – “YOUTESTME” template – the default and recommended option for uploading users into YouTestMe GetCertified.This template contains all the fields, and it is fully compatible with GetCertified.
    – “AGILE” template if your institution uses the Agile system, export your users from it and import them into GetCertified.
  4. Click on the hyperlink text Excel template to download an Excel template. Fill in the file with the necessary information. For more information on how to fill in the template, please watch the video.
    Note: In the “Groups” column, you can add a different group for each user. Each user doesn’t need to belong to the same group.
  5. Add an Excel file containing user data by clicking the Select File button.
  6. Click the Upload button to load users into the system.

        Once you upload a template, user accounts will be created, and users will be assigned to specified user groups.

        Note: It is impossible to upload users that already exist in the system. If you try to upload users from Excel where one or more users already exist, then the operation will be aborted, and none of the users will be uploaded.
