Here are some quick tips for adding students to your uploadable roster template:
- Copy and paste a PDF to a word document first and then to an Excel file. If you're downloading your roster from your student information system (e.g. PowerSchool, Infinite Campus, Skyward) or attendance management system, you might get a PDF. You should check to see if the download can come in different forms, like a .csv file. Sometimes, when you try copying and pasting a PDF into Excel, the formatting of the text makes the document unusable. However, if you copy and paste to Word first, and then copy and paste that text from Word to Excel, the formatting might work.
- Use Text to Columns to split up first and last name. If your Excel student list combines first and last name, you'll need to split them up to upload your roster into Kickboard. Text to columns will help you do just that in a matter of seconds. Click here for directions.
