Hierarchy Import

SL&L Hierarchy Import

Purpose: Institutional Administrators will design and build the hierarchy structure that will be used in Student Learning & Licensure. Most commonly, the hierarchy will reflect an institution's College and Department structure as found in their Student Information System, i.e. Banner, Peoplesoft, etc.  The hierarchy import spreadsheet is typically only done once.

IMPORTANT:  Once the hierarchy is created, individual nodes can NOT be moved.  Nodes can be renamed, but the only method to do so is through the UI, NOT the import spreadsheet.    

NOTE:  If the hierarchy should be in alphabetical order in the UI, the hierarchy import spreadsheet should be built in reverse alphabetical order.  SL&L imports each line one at a time, and places each new tier at the top of the hierarchy.

Accepted File Formats – The import supports the following file types:

*.csv – UTF-8

All files must have the correct file extension.
