screen, browse to find your completed spreadsheet. After selecting your file, click the UPLOAD button.
The next screen shows you the results of your import. If there were any errors in the upload, you will see
them listed with the errors displayed in red. You can correct these errors by inputting the correct data
directly on the screen and clicking the SAVE button.
Typical errors include using a username that is already in use (this is a system wide rule and not limited
to usernames in your school or district), or invalid characters in any of your fields.
LANGUAGE FILTER
The language filters allows you to enter a list of words that are prohibited from being published on your
teacher pages. This is particularly important if you choose to allow students to comment on photo albums
or on your blogs.
Enter the undesirable word in the text box and click SAVE to add it to your list.
IMPORTANT: You may want to include a space before or after any word that may appear as a part of a
larger word. For example, if you entered the word “ace” as a prohibited word, the word “face” would also
be prohibited. Enter a space before and after each word to ensure that only that word is prohibited.
To delete a word from the prohibited list, simply check the box next to the word and click the DELETE
button.
