How do you reuse the same course task list in multiple courses? This feature allows you to make a task list as a spreadsheet and import it into a course. This saves you time having to rebuild it for each course where you want the same task list. Consider making a few templates for the types of task flows you often use and save them as spreadsheet files. This will make project management within Coursetune more consistent across courses and programs.
Building a task list in an Excel file is simple, with just couple of columns needed.
Step 1: Inside a blank Excel file, the first column header should be called "Title", denoting the task title. The second column header should be called "Description", where you can then add the task descriptions. Please note that these headers should be capitalized.
Step 2: Add your task titles and descriptions. You can add as many as you would like.
Step 3: Make sure to rename the tab to "Task Info".
Note: If you receive an error message when importing, please check that the tab is named correctly- there should be no period.
You're ready to import the list!
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
