To help make the process of importing students as easy as possible, Boardingware gives you the ability to download a template CSV..

Below are all the CSV's column-headers relating to Student information. When you open the file in a spreadsheet, you will be able to copy and paste data from other spreadsheets in to match the column headers. If you do not change the order, the importing tool will match them much more easily for you.

  • Boardingware ID*
  • House Name
  • Student First Name
  • Student Last Name
  • Alternative Name
  • Student Email
  • Student Reference (ID)
  • Student Home Phone
  • Student Mobile Phone
  • Gender
  • Date of Birth (eg. 2016-30-06)
  • Year/Grade
  • Dietary Information
  • Medical Information
  • Pin Number

The only mandatory fields are Student First Name & Student Last Name.
*If you do not assign a Boardingware ID to your student list, one will be assigned by the system when you upload the spreadsheet.

Below are the CSV's column-headers relating to your first contact's information.

  • Contact 1 First Name
  • Contact 1 Last Name
  • Contact 1 Title
  • Contact 1 Relationship (e.g. Mother)
  • Contact 1 Email
  • Contact 1 Home Phone
  • Contact 1 Mobile Phone
  • Contact 1 Address
  • Contact 2 First Name
  • Contact 2 Last Name
  • ... etc

You can have up to four contacts per student with the initial student upload. After this you can add them singularly.
