Districts that do not have a Lightspeed Rocket web filter can manually upload a users.csv file to Lightspeed Dashboard to create user accounts.
Step 1: Create the users.csv file
To delete, disable, or move users, create a users.csv file, with one line per user, in the following format:
||Unique ID of the user in your SIS. Must be unique within the entire district
||The user’s login name. For users authenticating with an auth source on your Rocket, this should be their network username and must be unique to the district.
||First name of the user
||Last name of the user
||The SIS ID for each school, which must be unique within your district.
||Grade level is optional unless you need to filter Campus Library items by grade level, or set restrictions policies in Mobile Manager by grade level.United States – Student grade level or year (1 through 12) Use 0 (zero) for Kindergarten, and -1 (minus one) for Pre-KindergartenUnited Kingdom – Student year (1 through 12). Use -1 (minus one) for Reception, 0 for Year 1, 1 for Year 2, etc. For example:Reception- -1Year 1- 0
Year 2- 1
Year 3- 2
Year 13- 12
||Email address where the user can receive notifications, messages, and alerts.
||student: 1staff: 2
||If left blank, the default user type student is used.
||Only needed for users not authenticating with your Directory service
Caution: Open the file in a text editor or spreadsheet, and verify that it contains only users that should be affected by this operation.
Note: The import files must be named correctly or they won’t be imported.
Important: CSV files must be encoded as “UTF-8 without BOM”.
Step 2: Upload the users.csv file to the Lightspeed Dashboard
- 1. Navigate to https://launch.lightspeedsystems.com and log in as a District administrator.
- 2. Click the Admin Tools tile and select SIS.
- 3. Click the Actions button and select Import Users.
- 4. Click the Browse button to find and select the users.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.
