Another Importing Sections Question

Asked by Brian Lockwood on 2008-07-15

Well, If one makes a new course manually, you get the opportunity to enter a name, description and ID. On import of courses you get to nominate the name and description.
Having imported 1000 or so courses, I find that when importing sections, the course is matched against the ID and not the name and so hand made courses with an ID are OK but mass imported courses are not matched on the sectionimport.csv file

BTW, mass deletion of courses would be useful.

Hmm, for mass deletion of courses I can only suggest removing the Data.fs and starting the process over from a clean slate. As soon as we'll have multiple schoolyear support we will probably allow "clean up" of a single school year (as in - delete all courses/sections in this school year)...

As for Course IDs - would having an id field in Course CSV import form help you? Because I might be able to include that in our bugfix release...

Thanks

That would be ideal, when is the bugfix release?
