Purpose of Importing Learning Folders

The Accord LMS provides the ability to easily Import Learning Folders.

This facilitates the quick creation of Learning Folders within your Accord LMS Catalog and saves from having to create numerous Learning Folders from scratch.

What is Needed to Import Learning Folders?

The process begins by setting up any Learning Folders desired to import in a (.csv) file which can then be readily uploaded into your LMS portal.

Important Comments Regarding (.csv) Files Used for Import

The (.csv) file is processed from the top down. 

Parent Folders must either already exist in the system or be listed in the (.csv) file before the Child Folder which references them. 

Any Learning Folders having duplicate names will not import. 

Errors will result if a Learning Folder with the same name already exists within the LMS, or if duplicated within the (.csv) file being imported.

Sample File

To obtain a sample Folder Import .csv file please link to; Import Samples.

Once you get to the page, under Sample Import Types go to Folders Import.
