If you are using the platform to host in-person events or instructor led trainings (ILT), save time by creating multiple ILT content items via import.
Actions you can complete using the ILT Bulk Import process:
Creating or Updating Course Groups
When you create a course group, you are functionally creating two things in the platform - the initial session and also the item that will display in the main content list. If your event will only have one session, the course group and the initial session will display as one item in the main content list. Once you add additional sessions, the Course Group displays in the main content list and you can view all sessions (including the initial session tied to the Course Group) in the session list. The session list is accessed by clicking on the Course Group Title.
Viewing a Course Group with a single session in the Content List:
Viewing a Course Group with multiple sessions in the Content List:
Before creating multiple sessions, you will always need to create a Course Group/Initial Session first. If you need to create multiple Course Groups, bulk import is great! However, if you just need to create one Course Group, but you need multiple sessions attached to it, we recommend creating the Course Group in the admin interface and then using the bulk session import to continue the creation process.
Creating, Updating, or Cloning Sessions
Sessions are all attached to the Course Group, but can be different in terms of dates, content, and some settings. If your event will have more than the first initial session (remember the initial session is created at the same time you create a Course Group), you can use bulk import to add as many sessions as needed.
Creating, Updating, or Deleting Meetings
Meetings are the details for the actual event - when and where it will take place. You can add more than one meeting to each session using bulk import.
