Adding a class to your Mangahigh account is very simple. You will firstly need to create a spreadsheet (in either .XLSX or .CSV format) with listing each student’s first name, last name and class name in a separate column. You can also specify usernames, passwords and unique identifiers if you wish. All classes you want to upload should be listed on the same worksheet of the spreadsheet.
On the ‘Add Students’ page, go to the ‘Import’ tab. Upload your spreadsheet at the bottom of the page and select ‘Import New Roster’.
When your spreadsheet is uploaded, you will need to input the column headings by selecting the correct column header in the drop-down boxes.
The next step is to specify whether you are adding a class (Partial Student Roster) or updating your whole school account (Full Student Roster).
If the spreadsheet you are uploading contains the names of all pupils at your school who will be using Mangahigh, you should select ‘Full Student Roster’. With this option, any pre-existing students who are not listed on your new spreadsheet are identified as having left the school and are moved to the leavers folder. If you are adding additional students to a pre-existing Mangahigh account, you should make sure to select ‘Partial Student Roster’ to avoid sending the rest of your school to the leavers folder.
You will then be taken through the update wizard, which will automatically upload the students from your spreadsheet.
Next, you will be taken through the matching process. The system will pair up names with similarities, and ask you to confirm if the names in question represent the same student or not. If they represent the same student, they should remain linked. If they are two separate students, you need to deselect the link in the middle of the two names. This process is essential for ensuring that student data is maintained and that multiple accounts are not set up for the same student. The matching process is particularly beneficial when you come to update your students’ classes at the start of a new academic year.
When you get to the manual matching section at the end of the update wizard, you will need to specify what needs to happen to each student account in question. For existing records, you can designate the student as a leaver or as an unchanged account. For new records, you can designate the student as a joiner or ask the system to ignore the new entry.
Once the process has finished, click ‘Confirm All Changes’. You will be redirected back to your class overview with the new entries loaded. Select the relevant class from the drop-down menu to view the login details of all students in that class. Click on ‘Print All Logins’ to download a PDF that can be chopped up and distributed to your students.
Alternatively, you can simply email your class rosters to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will have your students’ logins created as soon as possible.
