If the records you want to add to the platform are very few in number say 5-10, then you can add them manually.
Check this → How can I add a record to the database?
If there are a lot of records then we will get it done for you. 😃
Here are 3 simple steps on how an admin can share alumni data to be added to the platform —
Download the Data Import Template from the Admin Panel.
Add the data to be uploaded to the data import template.
The downloaded template doc has a detailed explanation of what the template contains and how to add the data to it.
Please go through it and reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org in case of any queries.
Submitting the file
Once the required data are added to the template, you can submit the file HERE.
What happens after you've submitted the file?
After you've submitted the file, the Operations team at Almabase that manages the entire data upload process will be notified.
They will review the file and clean up the data for any anomalies. In case of any questions, they will reach out to you.
📝 Guidelines to be followed
The recommendation is to follow the data import template and share it in the specified format. The upload process gets much faster.
In the template file, on the sheet named “Options,” please add any new options for the drop-down fields and highlight them in yellow.
If your database contains over 50K records, we suggest splitting the database into smaller files.
On the "Course Structure" sheet, if you are adding a "Specialization," then please make sure to add a "Major" to it as well.
⏱ Data Upload Timelines
Depending on the volume of the records, completing the data upload process would take us a minimum of 10 to 15 days from the day we receive the file (provided the data is shared as per the guidelines).
Note: The timelines might change if the format is different.
Please write to us at email@example.com or through the chat bubble 💬 if you have any questions. 😄
