Lightspeed Dashboard: Bulk Delete Groups
Deleting groups removes them from your district permanently and completely.
Note: This file is now picked up and processed nightly.
Step 1: Create the delete_groups.csv file
To delete (permanently remove) groups, create a delete_groups.csv file, with one line per group, in the following format:
||Unique ID in your SIS for each virtual classroom group to create. Must be unique within the entire district
||Name of the group/class
||The Group Owner. Unique SIS ID of the group owner (normally a teacher or other staff level user)
||Each Group is associated with either a school (typical), or a district. Enter the SIS ID for the school or district that is “home” for this group
Caution: Open the file in a text editor or spreadsheet and verify that it only contains groups that should be affected by this operation.
Step 2: Upload the groups.csv file to the Lightspeed Dashboard
- Navigate to https://launch.lightspeedsystems.com and log in as a District administrator.
- Click the Admin Tools tile and select SIS.
- Click the Actions button and select Bulk Delete Groups.
- Click the Browse button to find and select the groups.csv file to upload.
Tip: Test by importing a sample file with just a few rows at first, then look at the SIS Error logs to find and correct any formatting errors in the CSV file.
