Teaching staff can be added to iWalkObservation in two ways. 

  1. Manual entry via the "edit staff" page - Learn More
  2. Creating a CSV file from an excel document and emailing the csv to iWalkObservation for a data import. This is generally complete and ready for you to important into iWalkObservation within 48 hours.

(technical skill level - novice to intermediate)

  1. Download the linked csv file and open in a spreadsheet application such as Excel. 
    Note: While other spreadsheet programs may be used excel is recommended for its file conversion character format to "csv."
  2. Ensure an * is in each cell in the 'F' column (see image to the left). This is a required element for import. Each data line you create must end with the * character in the 'F' column. It is needed for iWalkObservation to parse your data correctly.

    Do not use commas (,) in your staff list file in any field.
    A "csv" file is comma delimitated. Using commas in the data with skew the results of the import.
  3. Save your file as a "csv" file. To do this, click on "File : SaveAs"
  4. In the corresponding dialog box, ensure "File Format" or "File Type" is set for "csv".
  5. When naming your file, use something entirely unique and be certain to include the ".csv" file extension in lower case. For example, if your school's name is Jones Elementary, consider a file name of JonesElem####.csv where "####" is the last for digits of your main phone number. This will help keep your file separate from any other on the iWalkObservation server.
  6. Using the upload tool box below, upload your CSV file to the iWalkObservation servers.
  7. Return to iWalkObservation and the "edit staff" screen. Click on the "import" button and the "I have an import filename!" Enter your file name along with ".csv" file extension. 

Note: Your .csv file will remain on our servers for at a minimum of 30 days. Keep a copy yourself for future updates beyond the 30 day time frame.
