e-maktab enables you to import bulk data using a CSV file. We have enabled CSV import on parents, students and teachers.
To import all your parents follow the steps below:
Create a CSV file with the following headers.
name, address,city,postcode,country,mobile,email,home_phone, relationship
NOTE: Name, Mobile and Relationship (father or mother - please use all lower case) are mandatory fields. Mobile phone is unique and can only belong to one parent, meaning the same mobile number can not be used for another parent. Also for Relationship field please use either Father or Mother (first letter being upper case).
One more thing to check is when you enter a mobile or home phone the first 0 gets removed in pretty much all excel sheets, you'll need to format the mobile column as TEXT and than enter the number for the 0 to remain.
For country, you MUST use the following country code.
GB = United Kingdom
IE = Ireland
Once you're happy with your file save the file as CSV format and upload it to the parent section on e-makatb.
Login > Click on Parents menu > Click on Import Parents button
Select the CSV file by click on the choose file button and click on the Import button to import the data.
If everything is fine all your parents will be imported.
