Import students from Excel
You will be able to import the personal data of the students you have in any Excel file.
The steps you have to follow are:

NOTE: At the bottom of the last screen you will see the options Link to other students from other groups if the identificator matches, and Link with students from other groups if Name and Surname match. The verification cases are not selected by default; if you want to carry out any of these two actions, activate them before pressing the Import students button.
Import students from Official platform
With this option you can import students’ groups directly from the main educational platforms among your region (SÉNECA, YEDRA, SAGA, XADE WEB, ÍTACA...). To know which file you have to import, check the instructions that appear when you select it.
NOTE: If you do not find your platform, send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to add it.
Import students’ pictures
It allows you to link the individual pictures of each student. In this case, it is important that each picture is named after the student’s identificator. Thus they will be automatically linked to that student when you import them.
Import pictures with face recognition
The application will automatically detect the faces that appear in the picture so that you can later link them to the students.
