Importing a task list from a spreadsheet is an easy way to create the same task list in many courses. For example, use the import task list function if you have many courses that all will need the same editing steps that faculty will follow after a course import. This feature can save you time and help create consistency across a curriculum project.
After building a simple Excel file, you can import it easily into your course (level-4 object). Refer to this article if needed: How do I build an Excel file for importing a task list?
Step 1: As an Editor or Manager, navigate to the course level (level 4), and make sure Edit Mode is on.
Step 2: Select the Task List icon in the right panel, and click on the plus sign +.
Step 3: Click on .xslx, find the Excel file on your device, and then click Add.
The Task List will populate in the right panel.
Didn't work? Here are three things to check that are easy to miss when you create your Excel file:
- The tab in the spreadsheet must be called "Task Info"
- The Row 1 column headers need to be "Title" (A1) and "Description" (B1)
- The file must have the ".xlsx" file extension
