Importer: Bulk Archiving Students

Liz Gehret -

Bulk archiving users can be done through the Importer App

What information do I need to archive students?

All of the same required fields that must be included in a Student Sync file.

*First name is required only for new accounts


I have the list of users I need to archive, now what?

The file should be formatted according to the following specifications, or you may view a sample file here: Bulk-Archive-Users.csv
